Policy on Third-party Fee Capping of Non-Covered Services

Purpose

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) supports dental benefit plan provisions designed to meet the oral health needs of patients by facilitating, beginning at birth, the delivery of diagnostic, preventive, and therapeutic services in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated and family-centered manner. A well-constructed dental benefit plan respects and meets the needs of the plan purchaser, subscriber/patient, and provider.
