Thank you considering Natural Dentistry’s Award Winning Dr. Yuriy May – Connecticut’s Top Dental Implant Specialist and Premier Holistic Dentist! We are honored to have you consider becoming our patient and experience the incredible health, wellness and dental services at New England’s Premier Holistic & Reconstruction Dental Practice.
Does Dr. May accept insurance? What is the dental office insurance policy?
It is very important that new patients considering seeing Dr. May, Connecticut’s Top Holistic Cosmetic Dentist, understand that Natural Dentistry is NOT an insurance driven dental practice, in terms of diagnosis, recommended treatment and fees. Dr. May will diagnose, recommend treatment options and deliver therapy based on optimal health and biological indicators, not based on insurance coverage (what is covered vs not covered), or the cost of of treatment. While Natural Dentistry will do the best to offer options within your budget, some services are necessary for health reasons, and cannot be opted-out of, such as removing or eliminating decay. Patients who will not pursue health related treatment due to insurance coverage will / could be dismissed from the practice, due to not accepting medical treatment.
If you are a patient only looking for insurance covered services and are more focused on savings than investing into full body health and your maxillofacial diagnosis, then Natural Dentistry might not be the optimal fit for you as a patient. However, should you be considering investing into your long-term health, our practice is the perfect match as Dr. May’s dental services are ultimate self-investment into looking and feeling our best, as health starts with the mouth, even beauty shines from a gorgeous smile. Dr. May offers the most beautiful dentistry and health conscientious services in Connecticut, and participates with all insurances as an out of network provider to make our one of a kind dental and health services available to all.
Because of the diversity of insurances that patients have and the wait list that Dr. May has accumulated over the last year, Natural Dentistry has been forced to reduce its in-network participation, however, participates with all dental and medical insurances as an out-of-network providers. This significantly helps cover the cost of services, instead of not accepting any insurance at all. The difference between in-network and out-of-network coverage can be as little as 10% depending on dental procedures and services. Regaining your health and seeing a top medical practitioner in the country, is priceless, and so costs are not the driving force behind Natural Dentistry’s treatment planning philosophy.

How do I know whether you accept my dental insurance?
Natural Dentistry is not an insurance driven practice, and accepts very few dental insurances as an in-network top dentist. As a courtesy to our beloved patients, we participate with ALL insurance companies, as an out-of-network provider. This significantly helps cover the cost of services, instead of not accepting any insurance at all. If you are only interested in in-network and insurance covered services, please know we may not be able to accommodate you. However, as an out-of-network dentist, we will provide and bill all services on your behalf. All patients are responsible for the balance of the bill that insurance does not cover.

Why are some premium dental services at Natural Dentistry not covered by insurance?
Part of our philosophy places our dental patients’ health above all else – which leads us to use the most premium, hard to source dental materials and equipment available on the market for incredible, non-toxic, metal free and natural results. Our practice puts in an extraordinarily high degree of effort required into all patients, spending 3.0x more time with each patient than a typical dentist or dental surgeon properly diagnose, research alternative modalities of treatment for treatment planning and ultimately execute the perfect dentistry required to ensure the patients health is optimized and the dental results are worthy of admiration by patients and strangers alike.
Due to our philosophy to put health and dental material quality above all else, our practice is not dental insurance reimbursement focused, however, to accommodate patients we do accept some (limited) insurance plans. Because we are a holistic and premium dental implant and reconstruction practice, there are some services that insurance will not reimburse for as they consider them unnecessary or “experimental”. Our office thinks of them as “cutting edge, research based alternatives” being offered by less than 3% of the world’s top dentists, which Dr. Yuriy May falls into. Dr. Yuriy May’s priority is to deliver optimal health, wellness and beautiful dental reconstruction, irrespective of standard dental insurance coverage policies.
How will I know the cost of treatment?
Each patient will receive full pricing estimates of treatment plans and the first new patient appointment. The estimates cannot be provided over the phone, and estimates are exactly as they are stated: estimates only. Natural Dentistry cannot control whether all dental services or a portion of dental services that patients’ dental insurance will cover or will not cover, nor can the practice control additional services that Dr. May may need to deliver during treatment based on radiographic information or observed infections during therapies or surgery. All patients are responsible for 100% of the fees for services rendered by Dr. May that insurance does not cover.
What is the financial policy for scheduling appointments for treatment with Dr. May?
Once every new patient is presented with a treatment plan and recommended treatment options, patients are required to leave a 50% deposit based the estimated cost of treatment to book their next appointment.
Example – illustrative purposes only:
- Estimated cost of treatment for 2 fillings and 1 crown: $2200
- Estimated dental insurance coverage: $500
- Estimated patient out of pocket responsibility: $1700
- Payment required to book the appointment for treatment: $850 deposit
- Date services rendered pay remaining portion of OOP patient responsibility: $850
- Actual insurance payment 14 days later: $200
- Balance patient must pay within 14 days of receiving bill: $300
