Get organized now for a stress-free year of a better, healthier smile.
• Make a checklist.
Start with the basics — make a list of preventive services you need. You should visit the dentist 2 times a year for a cleaning and checkup, according to the American Dental Association. If you know you’ll need additional dental work, like fillings or crowns, pencil those in too.
• Study your coverage.
Once you know what procedures you need familiarize yourself with dental insurance basics. Then review your benefits plan so you know what’s covered. What’s your deductible? What about your annual maximum? Most plans cover a percentage of procedures up to a specific dollar amount.
• Construct a timeline.
Write down any appointments or procedures to be done this year. Schedule them accordingly to accommodate your budget and plan coverage. Update the timeline as you consult with your dentist.
