    I love your staff! They are all so friendly and inviting. At my old dentist’s office I felt like I was bothering them with my business. Here, I always feel at home and very welcome. I tell everyone I know about them.

    Dr. Cashion is great with my kids. I wasn’t sure how my 3-year-old would act on his first visit but the doctor and his staff made us feel at home. I’d recommend this office to anyone.

At what age should my children first see a dentist in college station?

It’s important that you, as an adult, see the dentist twice per year for a checkup and possible teeth cleaning. It’s just as important that your children see the dentist as well. You should bring your children in to see the dentist starting as soon as their baby teeth come in. During your visit, the dentist will be able to identify any problem areas your child might have, assess proper spacing and monitor appropriate development. As your child grows, you’ll also learn the proper way to brush your child’s teeth to help prevent tooth decay.

Bringing your child to the dentist at an early age can allow them to get acclimated to the dentist instead of hearing about it from their friends at daycare or school. This helps them to not be scared of the dentist and to think of him as someone who is going to help.

Which insurance plans do you take?

When choosing the right dentist for your family it’s important to know whether your insurance will be accepted before you visit or have any work done. This can save you time, energy, and money.

Here at Cashion Dental we understand the need to accept as many insurance providers as possible in order to better serve our clients. This is why we try our best to take and file most all patient insurances.

While we try to take as many as possible we are “In Network” with:

  • BlueCross BlueShield
  • United Concordia
  • Delta Dental
  • Cigna


If you have any questions or you aren’t sure if we accept your insurance provider, give us a call. We’d be more than happy to let you know before you schedule your first visit.

Can I get my teeth cleaned on the 1st visit?

Your first visit to our office will serve as a way for you and your family to meet the practitioner. This will help you see if the dentist will be the right fit for your family and give you the best care. During your first visit the practitioner will check your teeth. Your visit may include:

  • Teeth Examination
  • Gum Examination
  • Teeth X-Ray
  • Oral Cancer Screening
  • Discussing Proper Cleaning Techniques
  • Possible Cleaning


If your dentist finds anything out of the ordinary he will discuss this matter with you. You will then decide on a course of action to take care of the problem. Most visits will usually result in an initial cleaning if nothing out of the ordinary is found. If time prohibits, you can schedule a time to come in for your initial cleaning at a later date.

 

    Which Insurance Plans Do Dentists in College Station Take?

  • February 14, 2016

    Published by Cashion Dental

    Most College Station dentists accept multiple types of insurance that can defer the costs of caring for your teeth and gums. There are many dental insurance options out there, and many dentists also offer in-house financing, but the three most common types of dental coverage accepted by the majority of dentists are:

    1. PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) : plans give you access to a network of dentists who have contracted with your insurer to provide policy holders with substantial discounts. Your insurance company will also cover a higher percentage of the costs when you use a preferred provider. Outside the network, some savings may still be available, but savings are much bigger inside the network.
    2. DHMO (Dental Health Maintenance Organization) : policies are similar to PPO in that you get bigger discounts within a predetermined network, but it differs in that the insurer pays each network dentist monthly installments for joining the network. This means that network dentists have an obligation to serve policy holders and that you often pay nothing at all for smaller-cost services, while a co-payment will be needed for higher-cost procedures.
    3. Dental discount plans :give you a discount with network dentists as long as you pay that discounted price upfront in cash. Dentists sign on to eliminate the paperwork and wait-time otherwise needed to be reimbursed by insurance companies.

    Each College Station dentist may have slightly different insurance policies they accept and may be part of a different set of dental insurance networks. Be sure to do some research to find where to get the maximum reimbursements.

    Dentists in College Station, TX, provide their clients with advanced dental services like Invisalign braces, titanium implants, and pain-eliminating sedatives like nitrous oxide. However, many patients cannot afford to pay out-of-pocket to receive the benefits of modern dentistry.

    Most dentists understand the financial necessity of dental insurance to the majority of their clients. For this reason, they will typically accept any of the major types of dental insurance, including the following:

    • Preferred Provider Organizatioin (PPO): This type of coverage strikes a balance between treatment cost and dentist choice. Deductibles are low as long as you use a dentist within your PPO network. Dentists agree to accept a lower fee from clients in the network, but gain extra clients by joining it.
    • Indemnity: These plans, also called “fee-for-service” and “traditional,” maximize your choice of dentists. The terms require you to pay a percentage-based fee that varies with each type of service.
    • Dental Health Maintenance Organization (DHMO): DHMO plans are also known as “pre-paid.” The insured party is required to pay a fixed co-payment for each type of service, but often, preventative and diagnostic care are exceptions that involve no out-of-pocket expenses. As long as you stick with network dentists, costs are low, but if you go outside the network, you may have to pay the full bill.
    • Dental Provider Organization (DPO): These relatively rare plans operate either by rewarding you for staying in the network or by penalizing you for not doing so. They sometimes cover 90% to 100% of costs, but the policies and are very expensive.
