Why Choose Principal Dental?


What makes Principal Dental one of our top picks for a dental insurance company? It’s because they are beneficial to our patients! You are unique, and so are your dental needs. Principal gets that. Whether you only need an annual visit to the dentist for a cleaning or are looking for more coverage for services like crowns, fillings, and even root canals they have an option for you.

With Principal, you have the flexibility to personalize your dental insurance for you. Principal Dental has some impressive dental insurance plans that provide high value for the premiums. Some of the standout features include (depending on the plan), full coverage for preventative care.

We have been a Principal Provider with their PPO plans for many years now, and know that our patients with Principal PPO plans are receiving quality care at guaranteed rate set in place by Principal Dental. If you are unfamiliar with the term PPO, it means Preferred Provider Organization.  That allows you, as the patient, to go anywhere usually.  But if you do go to a Preferred Provider, you will get a reduced rate on your dental treatment. Principal PPO plans allow you to choose your dentist and not be assigned one. This allows you to get the dental treatment you want, and not just whatever may be the cheapest for the insurance company to pay!

Principal makes it easy for you and your provider to access your benefits and plan information. The online system is easy to use, and Principal has an account portal that you can access through your smartphone or tablet.  One thing you, as a customer, should look for when deciding on an insurance company is easy access to information!

Being a Principal provider has allowed us to see that Principal PPO plans provide good coverage at a reasonable price.  Although plans vary depending on price and requirements, overall Principal has some of the best coverage of the dental insurance companies we reviewed. Some plans cover the entire cost of preventative exams, bitewing X-rays and cleanings, and up to 90 percent of procedures like fillings or simple extractions. Coverage for major procedures, like root canals, varies.
