The cost of a dental check up with a dentist in long island city

The price for getting a dental check up actually depends on whether or not you have dental insurance because most of the PPO dental insurances will cover the visit at 100%. That is what our office have commonly observed but there are exceptions.

 

There are times when the annual deductible takes into effect or there might be a small 10% copay. The exact fee would depend on your insurance because they are the ones that set the fee.

Last but not least, the out of pocket cost of a dental check up with our office is $200 and that also includes the teeth cleaning as well as any necessary x-rays. If you wanted an Invisalign consultation, it is also a part of the check up. We've set our costs for the check up to be the most affordable in LIC.

For more information, check out our page on PPO dental insurances which our LIC dentists accept and are in-network with.

How often should you get a dental check up?

Our long island city dentists recommend that you get a dental check up every 6 months or roughly twice a year. For the most part, if you have dental insurance it is a fully covered expense so you might as well use your benefits!

Aside from financial benefits, it is also prudent to catch dental problems while they are small so you can either keep monitor them or address them immediately with a dental treatment. If you wish to monitor them, you have the opportunity to change your habits such as decreasing the amount of sugary foods that you consume and also increase your brushing and flossing frequency. That is the whole purpose of having a dental check up, so that you even have this option!
