What Is PPO Dental Insurance?

PPO dental insurance refers to a dental plan whose network of dentists classifies them as a Preferred Provider Organization. In this type of dentist network, an enrollee in the PPO plan will pay lower out-of-pocket dental insurance costs when using an in-network dentist. However, unlike a HMO dental plan, a PPO dental plan allows its enrollees to use out-of-network dentists. Out-of-network care, though, does come with higher out-of-pocket costs than is the case for in-network dental care. Indemnity plans also have considerable flexibility around dentist choice but the plan will reimburse dental care at a customary and reasonable rate determined by the insurance company, but this rate may not correspond to what a dentist actually charges a patient.
