Dental Insurance Plans in our Office
Cranford Dental accepts all major dental insurance plans. Our computer system will calculate
the amount that your insurance company will pay on treatments before the dentist begins work
on your individualized treatment plan. We will file claims to all insurance companies, accept
payment from the companies, and apply payment to patient accounts.
What if you are not in-network with my dental insurance plan?

service is usually minimum, if any.

who visit our office. Our patients are our number one priority. Our first question
is, “What is truly best for this patient?” and not “What will the insurance company pay on this
dental procedure?” We work with insurance companies as partners in paying for dentistry
rather than allowing the dental insurance companies to dictate what treatment is best for the
patient. A patient should never get a dental procedure just because the insurance will pay.
How do I know what my plan will pay?
With over 30 years treating patients from Rock Hill, Chester, York, and surrounding cities, we
have dealt with most of the insurance plans in our area. Our office staff will advise on how to
