Dental insurance cheaping out on paying

Hi everyone,

A few weeks ago, I went to the dentist and had 4 fillings done (it’s been a while). I paid about $500 to the dentist office, and they submitted to the dental company (out of network) the bill for the rest. The dental insurance company then turned around and paid me $57 directly since they’re out of network. The dentist just sent me a bill for the rest, it’s about $750.

My dental insurance is a $50 deductible, $1k maximum benefit, and I pay 60% out of network and they pay 40%.

Obviously $57 is not 40% of any number above, so what gives? Who do I fight with at the dental company to get the rest out of them?
