If you haven't had dental insurance recently, you might be overjoyed at the chance to purchase coverage. Dental procedures can be expensive, and you may have even postponed care due to financial concerns. Before you run to the dentist for a root canal or porcelain crown, you should take a good look at your dental policy. Depending on your particular policy, you may well have a waiting period that limits coverage on some procedures for the first months or year after making your first premium payment. Before making a claim, you need to understand exactly what your policy covers and when that coverage kicks in.
