Hello , my name isXXXXX and I will try my best to provide you with the answer to your question.

I am not from your area and sending you a link won't help if you are already confused. Believe me, all the choices out there confuse all of us too!
What I will say is that, from my many years of experience, I do not like dental insurance at all. It amounts to pre-paid care, does not cover a lot of pre-existing issues, it has long waiting periods and you still have to pay for part of the partials even if they are approved.

If you still wish to get it then the easiest way to pick a company is to first pick the dentist you wish to go to and then ask them what they take and who pays them well and is their preferred to work with. Dentists typically don't like to work with them because they typically don't pay well, have lots of paperwork and if they do pay, it takes a long time for the dentist to get paid. That is why if you ask them they will point to the one they like . If the dentist is happy you will get better care.

Another option is to get a Care Credit card and pay it off interest free over a year if you can.
If you need a low cost clinic to help make this work, a site called '' have lists of low cost clinics in many cities.

I hope this helps. Please ask more if I can help further.
