Use It or Lose It: EOY Insurance Benefits

November 15, 2021 7:15 pm Published by

The end of the year is coming up quickly, and it can be difficult to juggle travel plans, holiday get-togethers, and end-of-year school activities in addition to regular responsibilities. That’s why we recommend that families use their children’s dental benefits before they expire and before their schedules and our appointment schedule become more difficult to work around. Call our office today to find a convenient time to schedule your exams!

Schedule a Routine Visit

Has your child had their first or second routine dental visit this year? If their last dental cleaning and exam was over six months ago, it’s a good idea to schedule their next visit. If they have dental insurance, this appointment will be completely covered. Additional preventive services like dental sealants and fluoride treatments may be covered as well, depending on their specific plan. Routine cleanings help reduce tooth decay and gum disease. They also allow our team to diagnose and treat dental issues sooner rather than later.

Schedule Any Restorative Dental Work

When it comes to keeping dental care affordable, our team is on your side! If your child has hit their deductible but not their annual maximum and they need some additional restorative dental treatments, like fillings, crowns, or root canals, now may be a great time to schedule these services. In some cases, we can even split treatments up so that some are covered by this year’s dental benefits, and the remaining services can be scheduled for next year when their benefits renew.

Avoid Delaying Treatment When Possible

We know that it can be easy to put dental care on the back burner. This is especially true if your child isn’t the biggest fan of visiting the dentist. However, what are currently small issues can quickly turn into bigger problems if treatments are not scheduled. Dental insurance typically covers a larger portion of basic dental procedures. However, it does not offer as much coverage for major procedures. By acting fast, you can not only reduce what you have to pay out of pocket, but your child will also be able to receive less invasive treatments as well.
