YOUR DENTAL INSURANCE WILL EXPIRE SOON, SO DON’T WAIT!

O ne of the most challenging problems we experience this time of year is patients trying to schedule last- minute appointments before their insurance benefits expire. We try our best to fit everyone in, but sometimes we’re completely booked and we have to schedule them for the next year, but by that time it’s too late. If you haven’t scheduled an appointment with us yet, now is the perfect time to do so — especially if you need something other than a routine checkup or cleaning done. Typically, dental insurance expires by the end of the year. This means that by Jan. 1, any money you’ve had throughout the year for your dental insurance will go straight to the insurance company. While you will continue to have insurance into the next year, any money that’s usable for dental or orthodontic work won’t transfer into the new year. Not very many people have dental insurance, which is why it’s imperative to utilize it as much as you can. If you have insurance through your employer, you most likely pay a premium to keep that insurance. I cannot stress enough how important it is to use the amount provided to you when you’re paying for it during the current year. It’s in the best interest of your oral health and your wallet to employ the benefits and the premium you’ve worked so hard to receive. When you wait until the last minute to schedule a dental appointment, understand that many other people are doing the same thing. It’s common knowledge that dental

insurance expires on Dec. 31, and people will begin to rush to

get their appointments in during the last few months of the year. If you haven’t had a

dental appointment recently and still have insurance benefit money left over, schedule an appointment as soon as you can to avoid being pushed into next year.

END OF THE YEAR. THIS MEANS THAT BY JAN. 1, ANY MONEY YOU’VE HAD THROUGHOUT THE YEAR FOR YOUR DENTAL INSURANCE WILL GO STRAIGHT TO THE INSURANCE COMPANY.”
