Cigna Dentist in Hawaii

Cigna Dentist in Hawaii

Cigna Dental has three different types of dental insurance for members nationwide. Of those three types, only one Cigna dental plan is normally offered to subscribers in the State of Hawaii.

Hawaii Dental Clinic offices have Cigna participating dentists in Hawaii for the main Cigna DPPO and Cigna DPPO Advantage dental insurance networks. While not every dentist accepts Cigna dental insurance, at least one dentist in each Hawaii Dental office will be a Cigna participating provider and offer the lowest allowable fees for dentistry in Hawaii.

If you are looking for a Cigna participating dentist in Hawaii then be sure to verify your dentist’s status with the Cigna network. Cigna has both an online website with integrated dentist finder as well as a toll-free customer service line with human staff who can provide assistance. Although many dental offices will claim they accept your insurance, only dentists and dental clinics that are participating providers with Cigna will give you the best service and lowest allowable fees.

Cigna offers an HMO network throughout many cities on the mainland United States. Cigna dental does not currently have HMO providers in Hawaii. You must have a PPO dental insurance plan with Cigna to receive benefits in Hawaii.

There are two different types of PPO dental insurance plans in Hawaii through Cigna. The basic plan, called Cigna DPPO, offers a lower level of coverage in return for cheaper monthly premiums. The premium plan, called Cigna DPPO Advantage, offers the best level of coverage in exchange for higher monthly premiums. Some Hawaii dental offices only participate with Cigna DPPO so be sure to look for an office that is registered as part of the Cigna DPPO Advantage network if you are interested in receiving the highest level of dental insurance coverage in Hawaii.

Hawaii Dental Clinic affiliated offices are all part of the Cigna DPPO Advantage network. Feel free to contact Cigna’s customer service staff or use the Cigna participating dentist finder website to verify the level of participation for your dentist in Hawaii.

United Healthcare Dual Complete Dentist in Hawaii

United Healthcare Dual Complete is a PPO dental insurance plan offered throughout the country. The United Healthcare Dual Complete dental insurance plan for Hawaii allows subscribers the opportunity to choose their own dentist with a different level of coverage for in-network versus out-of-network dentists.

Most of the dentists who are part of the Hawaii Dental Clinic group network participate with United Healthcare Dual Complete in Hawaii. Visiting an in-network participating provider means you will pay a lower price for care than if you visit a different office with only out-of-network dentists.

On example of the difference between a participating provider and a non-participating provider is the cost of an initial exam with xrays. If you have active coverage with United Healthcare Dual Complete in Hawaii:

• If you see one of the participating dentists at a Hawaii Dental Clinic, you will pay only sales tax for an initial comprehensive exam with xrays. Your out-of-pocket cost will be between $8 and $12 (depending on the type and quantity of xrays required).

• If you go to a different dental office without a participating dentist then you will pay up to $218 for your initial comprehensive exam with xrays.

The same difference applies to other procedures as well. Our experienced office staff can assist with you an estimate for the cost of service at your initial consultation appointment. If money is especially tight then you may want to request that Hawaii Dental Clinic administrative staff request a pre-authorization from your United Healthcare Dual Complete insurance plan. The pre-authorization is not legally-binding, but it does offer an assurance that your dental insurance company will cover at least a portion of the cost of services. For costly dental care the pre-authorization process allows you to schedule an appointment to get care while waiting for the insurance company to send written confirmation that they will pay for your services.

The pre-authorization process is a free service offered by Hawaii Dental Clinic to patients who have United Healthcare Dual Complete insurance in Hawaii.

More information about network participation is available through the United Healthcare Dual Complete website as well as through the “dentist finder” feature of United Healthcare [ed note: this link has been removed since the dentist finder website is currently offline]. The main United Healthcare website also has full details regarding coverage, benefits, maximums, and limitations.

As of 2018, the United Healthcare Dual Complete Hawaii plan offers coverage for most necessary dental care including cleanings, exams, xrays, extractions, and dentures. The plan requires a complicated process of pre-authorization for any dental work that is considered major. All of the Hawaii Dental Clinic offices will provide a free pre-authorization service for any United Healthcare Dual Complete dental patient. Call the closest dental office or stop in for more information regarding your dental insurance benefits.

Emergency Dentist in Waiamanalo

Emergency Dentist in Waiamanalo

Kama’aina in Waimanalo now have a convenient location for an emergency dentist in Waimanalo. The Hawaii Dental Clinic – Waimanalo office provides comprehensive dental care including emergency dental treatment for new patients. The practice can provide care for anything related to the mouth, but patients should contact 911 or visit an urgent care medical clinic for non-dental related issues.

The dental office in Waimanalo has access to high-tech equipment and can diagnose most issues on the same day. Many procedures can also be completed on the day of the initial evaluation to ensure that patients no longer have to return multiple times to fix one specific problem.

Emergency dental care can take many forms, but generally stems from bleeding, pain, inflammation, or discomfort in any area within the mouth. Common dentistry services to provide emergency care include root canals, extractions, debridements, and basic diagnostic services. Since emergency care is limited to a specific complaint, walk-ins and last minute emergency patients can generally be squeezed in between normal appointments.

Plenty of free parking is available throughout the Waimanalo Town Center during all normal business hours. So long as patients avoid parking in stalls explicitly marked as reserved, any customer parking stall is open for public parking. There are a number of other businesses throughout the only shopping complex in Waimanalo, but patients of the dental practice will have space free during the hours when the clinic is open.

Downtown Honolulu CBCT Dental 3D Machine

Thanks to the efforts of the dentists and staff at our Downtown Honolulu dental office, our town location now has a state-of-the-art 3D imaging machine available for our patients. A cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) machine uses modern software to stitch divergent images together to form a three-dimensional picture.

CBCT images have a number of advantages over traditional digital single xrays. CBCT scans use much lower radiation per relative scan dose, are significantly faster, and provide a clearer digital image. When compared to outdated film-based technology, a single CBCT scan provides the diagnosis capabilities of multiple old film radiographs with a much safer usage pattern.

As a courtesy to patients throughout the group practice, all affiliated offices are allowed to send patients to the dental facility in Downtown Honolulu to receive a CBCT scan. Depending on insurance and procedures planned, many patients can have the scan at low or even no out-of-pocket charge.

High-tech dental offices provide patients and providers with a host of benefits relative to older operations. While there is a significant cost to the group, the partner dentists believe that employing CBCT imaging in a dental practice is quickly becoming the standard of care and provides a level of diagnostic benefit that is impossible to replicate with older technologies.

Among other major benefits, the American Academy of Oral and Maxofacial Radiology views a CBCT scan as the preferred method of diagnosis and assessment of proper location for a dental implant. Our dental surgeons have unlimited access to the CBCT image and software to aid in their diagnosis, treatment planning, and procedures. Affiliated dentists can also use the CBCT to aid with pre-treatment diagnostic capabilities in advance of root canals, tooth extractions, and even services related to straightening your teeth.

Please call our office at 808-538-6522 or stop by to make an appointment for a consultation using our brand-new technology.
