Use Your Dental Benefits Before the End of the Year!

As the end of the year quickly approaches, the clock is counting down for how much time you have left to use your dental insurance benefits before they disappear. Here’s what you need to know:

Make the Most of Your Dental Benefits

Most dental plans don’t allow for any unused dental benefits to roll over into the new year. That means all your hard-earned “dental dollars” will be going to waste unless you use them. For some families, that could mean hundreds of dollars you didn’t get to use. If you’re not sure if you have any dental benefits left for the year, we recommend contacting your insurance provider.

How Should I Use My Dental Benefits?

Say you contacted your dental insurance provider and learned that you do in fact have some benefits left for the year. For example, many insurance plans cover dental cleanings and regular check-ups at least once if not twice a year. If it has been a while since you went to get your teeth cleaned professionally, there’s no better time than now!

Depending on your plan, now may be a good time to get that restorative dental procedure that you’ve been putting off. Further delaying treatment could result in a dental emergency, making your holiday celebrations very stressful!
