It’s here again – the holiday season is upon us. With trick-or-treating, turkey and football, and a big Christmas tree in our near futures, thinking about going to the dentist can fall to the back of our brains. 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.

Use it or Lose it … check out these tips to maximize your dental insurance benefits and flexible spending accounts HERE.

Save Money, Make Appointments

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!

It’s a busy time of year. Our stomachs are already grumbling in anticipation of roasted turkey and pumpkin pie. Our minds are busy thinking about Christmas presents and holiday breaks from the workroom. In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it’s easy to forget to take care of ourselves and instead get lost in the busyness of it all. However, no matter how busy we may be, it’s so vital to keep up with our oral health and hygiene. No one wants to worry about a cavity or a filling around the holidays, and that’s why it’s crucial to check in with your dentist before the end of the year.

‘Tis the Season to Use It OR Lose It

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.

Maximize your Dental Insurance Plan… Here’s How:

  • Know your dental insurance plan benefits. When you know what your deductible and maximum limits are, you’ll know how to plan out your treatments. It’s helpful to talk with your insurance company to know what treatments are covered and at what percentage. Then, you won’t be surprised with a higher dental bill than anticipated and can plan for any treatments that aren’t fully covered.

 

  • Preventative services are so important! Cleanings and other preventative services are often free with any dental insurance plan. So, not only are you getting services for free, you’re avoiding more expensive services in the future by keeping your oral health in top notch condition!
