Enrolling for dental coverage is a great start to a healthy smile, but getting the most out of your plan requires a few more steps.
With half of the year almost gone, it’s time to get your dental coverage in check with this list:
1. Make Your Dentist Appointments
Summer break is a great time for kids to visit the dentist since they won’t miss any school. At their summer appointment, it’s a good idea to schedule the next appointment about 6 months later, which could work with a winter holiday break. Find a Delta Dental network dentist here.
2. Plan Before Open Enrollment
Most people have open enrollment at the end of the year, so now is a good time to figure out what changes you may consider for next year. Talk to your dentist about any possible major work like dental implants and wisdom teeth removal. This gives you a chance to figure out coverage changes you may need and a head start on budget planning.
3. Make qualifying coverage changes
Qualifying events for coverage changes include things like getting married, adding a child to the family, or losing coverage under a spouse’s plan. Check your benefits handbook for details on your qualifying event coverage.
