Frequently Asked Questions
Is it difficult to work with DenteMax?
DenteMax strives to make partnership easy and hassle-free. You simply operate
as usual, verifying eligibility and submitting claims through the patient’s
insurance company or administrator.
While DenteMax provides the network for a large number of major insurers,
the patients in your area will come from just a few of these companies.
Most likely, these are companies that you are already working with.
Regardless of the patient or who his or her insurance company is, you have
just one fee schedule. You can submit claims using your customary fees and
the insurance company or administrator will adjust them according to the DenteMax
Regular communications with dental offices include yearly fee updates,
a quarterly newsletter and a secure web portal through which you can access
up-to-date network information.
Upon acceptance into the network, you will receive a Welcome Kit and Reference
Guide that will provide you with all the information you need to work with DenteMax.
DenteMax is committed to providing you with excellent service.

leased to insurance companies, third-party administrators and Taft-Hartley
Trust Funds to enhance their dental benefits programs.

patient for the difference between the DenteMax fee and your customary fee, if
there is a difference.

in writing and are effective in approximately 30 days.
