Don’t Let Your Dental Benefits Go To Waste!
Would you ever consider taking a bag full of money and throwing it in the garbage? Of course you wouldn’t! You would never willingly take money and throw it away, but you may be doing just that and not realize it. Can you remember the last time that you visited our office for a hygiene examination? If it has been longer than six months, then you may be wasting your dental insurance, which is essentially throwing money away. Most dental insurance benefits end on December 31st. Not using as much of your insurance as you can is wasting money that you have paid out in advance. Continue reading to learn more about why you should use your benefits before they expire.
Don’t Waste Your Dental Benefits
It is hard to believe that summer is over and we are already in the midst of the fall season. Before you know it, the holidays will be here and we will be celebrating the end of 2021. While many people will be happy to see this year come to an end, we don’t want that to happen before you have the opportunity to get the most out of your dental insurance benefits. Most dental insurance companies renew their insurance plan at the end of the calendar year and restart on January 1st. Any benefits that are not used prior to the start of the new year expire. There are two ways that you can maximize your benefits:
- Hygiene Examination and Cleaning – We recommend patients visit our office every six months for a thorough cleaning, X-rays, and an examination. Our team is able to inspect your mouth to be sure that there is no decay. We also check for other conditions such as oral cancer and gum disease.
- Necessary Treatments – If you have been delaying any recommended treatments, such as a filling, crown, or root canal, we highly encourage you to schedule an appointment before the end of the year. Being diligent with caring for your oral health helps to ensure that no additional problems creep up. This can add to your treatment plan and cause additional expenses.
It’s not too late to take advantage and use your benefits before they’re gone for good! Call our office located in The Woodlands, TX to schedule an appointment and we’ll make sure you get this year’s maximum benefits. We want to help you have a smile that you love to show off this holiday season.
