Don’t Forget to Use Your 2017 Dental Benefits!

dental procedure at Gentle DentalDon’t let your 2017 dental benefits go to waste!

As the Fall season is upon us, our patients often ask us to remind them to schedule their cleaning/exam appointment or their treatment appointment so they may have time to utilize their 2017 insurance benefits and/or their healthcare flexible spending account.

Did you know?

Your dental insurance policy allows for a certain dollar amount of coverage to be provided each year.
If your maximum coverage benefit is not used during the year, you lose those benefits, because unused coverage does not carry over to the next year.

We know how busy families are today, but by coming in for a regular dental cleaning/exam or by having recommended treatment done, you may avoid future complications that could cause you to exceed future dental benefits.

If you haven’t used up your insurance benefits for the year, and you have a diagnosed treatment plan you’ve been hesitant to pursue, or have had only one cleaning this year, we encourage you to make an appointment before the end of the year. Contact us so we can help you plan for your future dental needs.
If you are uncertain about the status of your dental benefits, we will be happy to contact your carrier on your behalf. We hope you find this reminder helpful.

CALL US TODAY at 757-431-1300 to schedule your appointment at either of our convenient locations,  or request an appointment online.   We look forward to seeing you at Gentle Dental Center!
