DentaQuest member dentist in Fort Worth TX accepts Medicaid for affordable access to quality care
More than one in five adults haven’t visited the dentist in the past “few years,” according to the American Dental Association’s Health Policy Institute. Fifty-nine percent of those surveyed by the ADA⤴ cited “cost” as the main reason they didn’t go to the dentist. Accordingly, fewer dental visits are associated with poorer oral health; of those who visited the dentist fewer than two times a year, only 20 percent identified their oral wellbeing as “excellent” or “very good.” Those who visited the dentist biannually? Fifty-eight percent said their oral wellbeing was excellent or very good. Sycamore Dental believes the oral care so essential to physical and emotional wellbeing is a right for all, which shouldn’t be reserved just for those in the top tax bracket. Dr. Suri accepts many insurance plans and is proud to call herself a Medicaid Dentist in Fort Worth, TX ⤴.
Sycamore Dental is a member of the DentaQuest provider network, the largest dental benefits administrator in the U.S. (and the largest in the Medicaid space). DentaQuest provides benefits for both Texas Medicaid Dental Services and the Texas Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for uninsured kids up to age 19 whose families may not qualify for Medicaid. These benefits cover a full range of care and needs, provided by the friendly DentaQuest member-team at Sycamore Dental:
- Basic care – Check-ups, cleanings, and X-rays are the foundation of a healthy mouth, beautiful smile, and overall wellness.
- Preventive care – We’ll save you and your family time, stress, and money by stopping problems before they have a chance to start. Dental sealants may be placed on cavity-prone back teeth to protect them from bacteria and food debris that tend to get caught in molars’ grooves and pitted surfaces. Fluoride treatments may be recommended to prevent cavities or repair teeth that have early-, microscopic-stage disease.
- Restorative care – Coverage also extends to those treatments necessary to restore your smile and oral health; for instance, a filling to repair cavities, crowns for more extensive decay, root canal therapy to “save” a badly damaged tooth, and extractions.
Dr. Suri and her team have taken great care to create an environment that feels less like an office and more like “home.” As such, we hope you actually look forward to seeing us for those 6-month checkups! But DentaQuest also rewards its members who get routine care. Knowing the importance of instilling good dental habits at a young age, DentaQuest’s pediatric members enjoy a free dental care kit complete with a backpack, infant toothbrush (for children aged 6 months to 35 months) or spinning toothbrush, toothpaste, and a brushing chart with stickers.
Dental partners you can trust
Every DentaQuest member works with a “main dentist.” We’re honored you have selected or are considering Sycamore Dental as your main dentist. Your family’s health is in good hands. Membership in the DentaQuest provider network is further validation of our quality care and commitment to serving families. All members of DentaQuest submitted an enrollment and credentialing application, which was later reviewed and approved.
Dr. Vidya Suri and her team have also developed a reputation for providing top-notch services in a gentle, compassionate, and friendly manner at a fair and competitive cost. We’re transparent about fees and will work with you to develop a plan that suits your personal preferences and budget. Plans may be phased should you or a family member have a lot of needs for treatment, prioritizing procedures by their level of urgency. Generally, basic and preventive services are 100 percent covered by the many different types of insurance plans that we are able to accept; however, only a portion of restorative treatments may be covered by your policy. Our experienced, skilled front-desk staff works with insurers and can provide assistance in getting estimates or answers to your questions about coverage. They can also file claims on your behalf – so they don’t leave the complexity (and hassle) of navigating the claims process to you! To help ease the burden of out-of-pocket expenses, Dr. Suri and her team offer affordable payment options, including flexible financing, to stretch the expense over months (or longer), and at no- or low-interest for qualified patients.
We hope your quest for a Medicaid dentist you can trust ends with Sycamore Dental. We look forward to getting to know you and your family and accompanying you on the lifelong journey that is oral health. Call (817) 438-1828 to schedule an appointment.
