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. As the end of 2018 approaches, Gentle Dental Center encourages you to schedule an end of year dental appointment to maximize your dental insurance benefits.
Although treatment is never dictated by an insurance policy, our experience has shown that careful planning can help to maximize benefits. Most dental plans allow routine exams and cleanings twice a year.
If you haven’t used your insurance benefits for the year, we encourage you to make an appointment before the end of the year. Contact us if you are due for a cleaning, have dental treatment pending, or wish to schedule a routine exam or dental treatment.
You may also participate in a Flexible Spending or Health Savings Account. In most cases, any money left in these accounts at the end of the year is forfeited. These are benefits you have paid into and you will not be refunded if you don’t use the account.
End of year appointments fill up quickly, so call us today at 757-437-1300 or request an appointment online.
