A new year wipes the slate clean. And while that’s a good thing for your resolutions, it can be a missed opportunity for your dental benefits. Here are 3 times you should squeeze in dental care before next year:
1. You have unused benefits.
Most dental plans cover preventive procedures at 100%. This typically includes routine exams, x-rays, fluoride, and cleanings. Treat your unused benefits like a coupon that’s about to expire.
2. You’ve met your deductible.
A deductible is the amount you pay for certain services before your insurance company starts paying. If you’ve already met your deductible for the year—even if you’re close—it’s worth squeezing in non-emergency care. You’ll pay lower out-of-pocket costs.
3. You’ve paid your premiums.
Monthly premiums are already paid—whether it be by you, your company, or a little from each side. Put that money into action and use your benefits to get what you paid for!
It’s always smart to see the dentist to help prevent problems. The checkup can detect and prevent dental issues, and can also help catch overall health issues too.
