Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, our smile’s need more than a routine dental check-up and cleaning.
If you need dental work, it’s a good idea to get a pretreatment estimate. Knowing your cost upfront helps you and your dentist plan treatments to maximize your benefits.
We have two ways for you to get pretreatment estimates.
MySmile Cost Genie℠ - instant estimate you get on your own
MySmile Cost Genie is a self-service out-of-pocket cost calculator. It gives you instant, personalized out-of-pocket cost estimates based on your dental plan and in-network dentist.
It’s a great way to check costs for different treatment options from any in-network dentist.
Get your estimate in just 3 steps:
- Sign in to MySmile® and click “Estimate costs”
- Use the dropdowns to select patient, dentist and treatment
- Click “Get my estimate”
We recommend you use MySmile Cost Genie for the occasional filling.
Confirmation of Treatment and Costs – detailed estimate you get with your dentist
For expensive, extensive treatment, we recommend you get a precise estimate by asking your dentist to submit a Predetermination to us.
Once submitted, you’ll receive a Confirmation of Treatment and Costs.
A Confirmation details your dentist’s specific treatment plan, what your benefits pay, and gives you an accurate out-of-pocket estimate. Many dentists are able to get Confirmations in real-time. If not, you can view your Confirmation through your MySmile account or wait for a paper statement via standard mail.
Create or sign in to your MySmile account to get your instant estimate and change your mail settings.
