Unlike medical insurance, dental insurance is meant to be used on a regular basis. Medical insurance is typically reserved for emergencies, serious injuries or illnesses, while dental insurance is mostly used to cover the cost of preventive treatments.

There are instances where the out-of-network rate is actually comparable to what you’d pay for being in-network.
