Why Choose a Guardian Dental Provider in Manhattan?
Save money. Our network dentists agree to never balance bill you more than their contracted fee. For example, if you are a PPO enrollee responsible for a 20% coinsurance amount, you pay 20% of your dentist’s contract fee. Non-Guardian dentists can charge you their full fee for their services.
Pay less up front. Guardian Dental pays your dentist directly, and sends you a notice explaining your portion of the bill. You pay the dentist only your portion of the services.
No expensive and unnecessary “unbundling”. Guardian Dental ensures you’re never charged extra for services that should be included in the cost of treatment. For example, when you receive a crown, a Guardian dentist cannot charge you additional fees for tooth preparation, local anesthesia, an impression or a temporary crown.
Quality you can count on. Guardian dentists are properly licensed and meet accepted standards for cleanliness and safety procedures. Plus, Guardian representatives work with dental offices to keep them updated on policies and network contracting requirements.
