Expatriate Dental Insurance and Dental Expenses

What You Need to Know?
You’re enjoying a wonderful dinner with your family and friends, and then it happens! Suddenly you bite down on a tasty piece of chicken, and there is a nasty bone where there shouldn’t be one. Now you’ve got a broken tooth, so instead of finishing your meal, you’re making an emergency visit to your dentist.

Or maybe your son was riding his bike, fell off and landed on the road front teeth first! Painful for him AND for your budget. If you have adequate expatriate dental insurance cover, you, your son and your budget will be fine. If you don’t have proper coverage, the pain in your wallet will last much longer than the pain in your or your son’s teeth!

If you’re an expat with a growing family, it is inevitable that your family will be making at least a few visits to the dentist, either for routine dental work, or because of a dental emergency. When that happens, you will pay for it all yourself, unless you have routine dental cover, or emergency dental cover. What proportion of the resultant costs will you have to pay for? What portion of the costs will be borne by your expatriate health insurance company? This is yet another factor to consider when you are in the market for expatriate medical insurance.

In fact, there are many expatriate insurance plans that offer emergency dental cover for dental care, such as a broken tooth that is the result of an accident; however, they may not offer routine dental cover for such things as a visit to the dental hygienist or for a crown. On the other hand, the best expatriate medical insurance plans do offer coverage for bridges, crowns, dentures and even routine dental work.
