Most dental plans are based on a calendar year (January through December), which means you satisfy your deductible once each year.
When your dentist submits a claim for a service (such as a filling), any applicable deductible is added to your coinsurance level. It may take more than one service or visit to satisfy the entire deductible.
Depending on your dental plan's design, some services (often, diagnostic and preventive services) may not be subject to any deductible.
