Fidelis has coverage for your regular dental visits to help you keep your smile healthy. Your dental care coverage is covered by DentaQuest, which is responsible for providing you with services such as regular cleanings and cavity treatment.
However, to use the insurance benefits, you need to find dentists who have agreements with the insurer. Finding them is simple through the Fidelis Care website.
How do I find dentists who accept Fidelis?
To find dentists near you, you need to access the Fidelis Care website; under the “providers” tab, you will find the option “find a doctor.” In the new account, you have to enter your location.
In “choose a location and a plan”, you can enter a city, zip code, or state; there will be a list with the plans available in each state of the city where you are, that way, you will choose the project you have and where you are exactly.
That way, you enter the official website to find nearby dentists. You can select the option of dentists by name, by specialty, find an office or facility by name or find a location by type.
These are specialized searches to find the professional that best suits your possibilities and the plan you have available. When you find the desired specialist, they will give you their contact number or office address so you can request your appointment using Fidelis insurance.
How to obtain dental benefits with Fidelis insurance?

Why should you have dental coverage with Fidelis?
Generally, when you purchase an insurance policy, you only think about the risks of hospitalization due to accidents or illnesses, but you can’t forget about dental coverage; you must maintain good oral health to avoid complications in the future.
Annual preventive care
Your coverage will take care of preventive visits to check for cavities or any problems with your gums and teeth. It is important to have a healthy smile to maintain it for many years to come.
Teeth cleaning services are usually expensive, and dentists recommend them at least once a year to remove anything that prevents you from having sparkling teeth. Fidelis Care will cover part or all of the treatment, depending on your insurance plan.
You may need to have a tooth pulled or a cracked tooth repaired, which without insurance is expensive at any specialized dental center. By having dental coverage, you will be able to go to the emergency room at the dental clinic and be seen quickly.
Is orthodontics included in the Fidelis Care insurance?
To begin orthodontic treatment, you have to call your provider and evaluate if the policy you have taken out has coverage for exams and corrective appliances. Not all insurance plans include this service because they are considered cosmetic procedures.
Finally, to get reimbursed for the expenses by the insurance, you need to have an order from the dentist stating that the procedure is important for your health. The order should explain the necessary process and the oral health problem it will correct.
