trip to your local cemetery, snapping some photos, and teaching your kids about tracking genealogy with names, dates, and descriptions.
MAKE A TRADITIONAL DISH If you really want to make family history stick, eat food that represents your heritage. Everyone has memories of meals their parents or grandparents used to make, so pass on some of yours to your kids! Teach your kids how to make great-great-grandma’s famous cannoli with her original recipe, or master the shepherd’s pie that your grandfather was famous for. The kids can create a shopping list, and then you can go together to pick up the ingredients. Make the recipes together, enjoy them with neighbors or relatives, and share family stories as you do. Even better — turn the food day into a party. Guests will likely share stories of their own heritage as you break bread over hearty memories. Don’t let your inquisitive kiddo down. Family history, good or bad, is important for every child to learn. The best way to teach them boils down to your child’s personality, their likes and dislikes, and the time you have on your hands. But it’s never too early to climb that family tree. How to Make Your Benefits Count The end of the year often coincides with dental insurance benefit deadlines. If you get your insurance through your employer, it may be a good idea to review your plan and ensure you’re getting the most out of your benefits. Even if you can’t get penciled in for an appointment this late in the year, you can make a plan for next year that puts your premiums to good use. Here are some tips for making the most of your dental insurance. BE PROACTIVE Many dental plans offer full coverage for preventive care such as cleanings. Not only does this minimize your out-of-pocket contributions, but it keeps more severe (and expensive) health issues from arising. Annual cleanings are a great way to put your benefits to use while staying two steps ahead of cavities and gum disease. SCHEDULE FOLLOW-UPS There’s never a better time to schedule your next appointment than when you’re still in the chair. Talk to your doctor about your dental needs, and work with them to determine when your next appointment should be. Doing this can ensure you stay on track with your care and make the most of your dental plan. LOOK TO THE FUTURE While the window to use your 2018 benefits may be closing, you may soon have an opportunity to change or alter your existing plan. During open enrollment period, you might be able to switch to a different level of coverage within your employer’s plan or shop around for individual coverage. Talking to your dentist or orthodontist about your specific needs and risk factors can give you a better idea of the type of plan that will work best for you in the future. You work hard for your insurance and should take advantage of your benefits. Being proactive about your dental health and determining the best plan for your future needs can help you save money and get the most out of your coverage. Above all, remember that the only thing worse than being overinsured is being underinsured. • • • • • •
