Let’s talk dental insurance.
Do you know that most dental plan benefits reset every year?
If you didn’t know, now you know. Unlike other health insurance plans with rollovers, most dental plans are structured around the calendar year. That means once the New Year celebrations begin, your dental benefits end and reset. With December 31st just around the corner, now is the time to take full advantage of everything your plan has to offer. Our SLO Smiles family dentists are here to tell you why.
Do you pay dental insurance premiums every month? If your answer is yes—then you should be using your benefits! Even if you think your pearly whites are in top shape, regular dental cleanings are an important way to detect cavities, along with gum disease, oral cancer, and other scary dental problems.
When you put off important dental treatments, you are putting yourself at risk for more expensive treatments beyond what your dental benefits might cover. A small cavity now could turn into a root canal later. Know that our family dentists are happy to work with your schedule—we offer flexible appointments, including availability on Saturdays.
Even the most basic dental insurance plans partially cover a wide range of treatments. This first step is simply figuring it out. Our friendly SLO Smiles staff would be happy to help you understand what your options are to keep your smile shining.
Cleanings, x-rays, important dental checkups—these services are typically covered by most plans, and prevention is always less costly than repairs.
Many dental insurance plans cover a variety of services, including fluoride treatments, Invisalign ®, along with crowns and implants. How cool is that? Doing these treatments now will help you maximize your yearly coverage, and brighten up your smile.
Let’s be real. Dental insurance is complicated, and you’re busy. Our friendly SLO Smiles staff is dedicated to helping you maximize your benefits while preparing you in advance for out-of-pocket expenses. Don’t miss out on the perks you’ve been paying for.
