How to Make Sure You Don’t Waste Your Dental Benefits Next Year

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

December – the last month of the year and, arguably, also the busiest when it comes to dental work! For many, you’re well aware of the reason why: insurance coverage does not roll over into the year.

On our end, we’ll do everything we can to make sure we can maximize patient benefits. There are also some steps you can take to do the same. By following these, not only can you work to maximize your benefits, but you’ll be able to spend more of your time before the holidays on last minute Christmas shopping, baking, wrapping…and everything else!

  1. Make sure to schedule ahead for six month check ups. We understand your schedule can change, but it’s better to have an appointment in our books than be on our waiting list!
  2. Ask your dentist if a filling should be replaced in the near future, if so, this may help carve more time out for your next visit!
  3. One way to avoid a root canal is to come get checked out if you think you might have a cavity.
  4. The best way to use benefits to pay for a larger or more complicated appointment is to schedule major work at the end of December and beginning of January. By doing this you use both years benefit value. Keep in mind it is extremely helpful when these appointments are scheduled in advance!
  5. Booking an appointment in October or November will give you more time and more flexibility to come back in if you need more work done.
