Getting the most from your dental insurance

As another year winds down, we want to remind you to take advantage of your unused insurance benefits, as most companies do not allow you to carry these over to the next year.

Most insurance runs on a calendar year, which means on December 31st, any unused benefits are lost. 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 those benefits by either paying for them, or working for them! Why throw them away? Why pay another deductible? Why run the risk of a 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 this treatment before the end of the year, you can maximize your insurance benefits, while enjoying better dental health.
