While we will always do our best to help you maximize your insurance benefits, our primary focus is on providing you with dental treatment that best meets your needs. Since dental insurance plans do not correspond to individual needs, many routine and necessary dental services may not be covered by your insurance plan even though you may be best treated with those services.
Getting the most from your dental insurance
We want to remind you to take advantage of your unused insurance benefits, as most insurance companies do not allow you to carry unused benefits over to the next year.
Most insurance benefits run on a calendar year, meaning on December 31st, any unused benefits are lost. You either use them or lose them. If you are in need of dental treatment, but have been putting it off, it’s important to realize that you are not only risking more expensive and extensive treatment down the road. Those are YOUR benefits! You have earned them by either paying for them directly, or working hard for them. Why throw them away? Why pay another deductible? Why wait and risk fee increases?
And if you do not have any recommended treatment, this may be the perfect time for cosmetic enhancements, like teeth whitening or bonding. By completing treatments before the end of the year, you can maximize your insurance benefits, while enjoying better dental health.
