This will vary from person to person, depending on what unique services you need to make your oral health 100 percent. Talk with your dentist to determine what services you need to stay healthy. More than likely, a routine dental exam and cleaning is an appointment almost everyone can make before the end of the year – this is a preventive care appointment.
Check over your insurance plan to learn if your insurance covers multiple cleanings every year. If so, make the most of your dental benefits by getting your cleaning in before the holiday-craziness begins and schedules tighten. Also, if you have questions for your dentist or you are curious about the status of your oral health, a routine check-up is the perfect way to learn about your teeth’s health and ask questions.
Appointments can often be categorized into two groupings – preventative and elective services.
Preventative dentistry is all about maintaining oral care and preventing oral health problems down the line. This often includes regular cleanings, regular oral exams, routine x-rays, and a oral cancer screening. Dental insurance plans often fully cover preventative care services and appointments. You can also help maintain your oral health at home by brushing twice a day and flossing once a day.
It’s here again – the holiday season is upon us.

It’s so easy to do, so we’re here to remind you today about the importance of getting the most out of the dental insurance you pay for. When end-of-the-year rolls around, it’s imperative to use your dental benefits and get your appointments scheduled to see your dentist.

Did you know you can save possibly thousands of dollars if you use your dental benefits before the end of the year? Dental insurance deductibles are often met, annual maximums won’t roll over, and next year’s premiums may increase. So, it’s time to start thinking about what dental services you and your family may need and want.
If you need larger dental treatments and you’ve met your deductible, the end of the year is the perfect time to get these treatments completed! Once you reach your deductible, out-of-pocket expenses drop dramatically, so treatments are easier to get done and less expensive for your wallet.
If you’re getting close to reaching your annual maximum, talk with us at Premier Dental and we can help create a plan to split treatments between year to year, if needed. We love to work with you and your insurance to create the perfect plan for your treatments to get you the treatments you need and the services you want!
Walk into almost any store in the next few days and you’ll see a slew of Christmas decorations. While some of us may be surprised to see aisles full of blow-up Santa’s and sparkling Rudolph’s, the truth is, the end of the year is approaching quickly and is a busy time. Our schedules often fill up with family events, holiday parties, and to-do lists, so it can be easy to forget about scheduling our dental appointments. It’s important to make the most out of your dental benefits before the end of the year because any remaining benefits will not rollover into the next year.
