For those of you with dental insurance, you likely have money sitting in the bank account of your insurance company that is earmarked for YOU! If you don’t act quickly, the insurance company gets to keep what you’ve already paid for! As we approach the end of the year, we wanted to share a tip that can help you take full advantage of any dental insurance benefits you may have.
Your dental coverage is structured to provide a certain dollar value of benefits each year. If the maximum allowable isn’t used, you lose them! Unused benefits do not carry over to the next year. Many people do not realize this and let hundreds (or even THOUSANDS) of dollars worth of benefits go back into the insurance company’s bank account! While treatment we recomend is never dictated by insurance, if you do have outstanding treatment plans, or any dental concerns at all, it would be very beneficial to see your dentist before the end of 2016!
Our goal with every patient is to help you enjoy great oral health, and more and more studies are indicating that your oral health is a significant contributor to your overall health. That means you look good, feel good, have strong teeth and gums and enjoy a healthy attractive smile for a lifetime.
If you would like to make an appointment, give us a call and we will find a convenient time for you. Just remember, our office is closed for the year as of December 22 2016 and when the clock strikes midnight on December 31 those benefits are gone for good! Our appointment times are filling quickly so don’t delay! We are happy to help you maximize your dental coverage you are entitled to under your dental insurance policy.
