Dental treatment in most countries is incredibly costly. Usually there is a waiting period before insurers will allow any treatment claims. Always make sure to check on your insurer’s policies on their waiting period if they have one as the length of time varies. Most insurers will cover pre-existing dental issues as many people have needed previous dental care and it is unlikely that someone doesn’t have pre-existing dental. After a certain waiting period insurers will may covering pre-existing dental issues depending on the policy provider. Please note that we do not provide dental only plans.
