Many people forget that taking out any type of insurance policy is a risk. With medical insurance, car insurance, and home owner’s insurance, we hope we don’t need to make a claim – but we pay premiums each month “just in case.” However, a dental insurance policy works a bit differently. Dental insurance actually offers you something. You are allotted certain benefits with your dental plan, and you need to remember to take full advantage of them!
Most dental insurance covers two dental checkups and cleanings each year, as well as offering up to $1,000 – $1,500 towards dental procedures like fillings, crowns, and bridges (make sure to check your policy for specific coverage). If you are not using your dental benefits, you are merely throwing your hard-earned money away. Dental coverage typically lasts for one year, from January 1 through December 31. Any benefits that you have not used will be lost; they will not roll over into the following year.
Right now is the perfect time to contact Jefferson Dental Care. Between now and the end of the year, you have plenty of time to schedule an appointment. If you simply need a routine visit, that should be easy to work into your schedule. However, if you require more extensive dental work, it is imperative that you contact us as soon as possible. More complicated procedures often require multiple appointments, and these may be trickier to work into your busy schedule. By calling today, you will still have the last week in October and the full months of November and December to work with.
Regular dental appointments benefit your wallet, for sure, but they also benefit your health. By visiting your dentist twice a year, any concerns will be found and dealt with before they become major issues. This will help save you money, time, and stress!
At Jefferson Dental Care, we are here to provide dental care for optimal oral health. Don’t forget to use your dental insurance! Call our practice today to schedule an appointment.
