Important questions to ask when choosing and purchasing a dental plan 1. Does the plan cover diagnostic, preventive and emergency services? If so, to what extent? Most dental plans provide coverage for selected diagnostic services, preventive care and emergency treatment that are basic for maintaining good oral health. But the extent or frequency of the services covered by some plans may be limited. Depending upon which services the plan covers, the patient may be required to pay the dentist directly for a portion of even basic care. It is important for the individual who owns the policy to understand how much treatment is covered in any given year. Every dental plan is different. </p> <UL><LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/1/1/">Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/2/2/">Inside-Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/3/3/">Page-3</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/4/4/">Page-4</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/5/5/">Page-5</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/6/6/">Page-6</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/7/7/">Page-7</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/8/8/">Page-8</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/9/9/">Page-9</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/10/10/">Page-10</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/11/11/">Page-11</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/12/12/">Page-12</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/13/13/">Page-13</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/14/14/">Page-14</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/15/15/">Page-15</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/16/16/">Page-16</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/17/17/">Page-17</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/18/18/">Page-18</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/19/19/">Page-19</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1603/hvvyzehvw/20/20/">Back-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publications/1603/x/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">site map</a></LI> </UL>
