Don’t Leave Free Money on the Table
As we get closer to the end of the year, we find that many patients forget that they still have unused insurance benefits. Most dental insurance plans allow for two different dental checkups within a year that typically fully cover the cost, or cover the majority of the cost, for patients. However, if you do not use one or both of these benefits from your dental insurance, they do not roll over into the next year. This means the benefits from this year are lost to you! Your dental insurance is essentially free money that you can, and should, use every year!
What is Covered with Your Dental Insurance
Dental insurances vary on what is covered per provider, so the best way to find out is to call your insurance company and ask, or call our team at Aesthetic Family Dentistry. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff can help you understand what benefits you have and book you an appointment at the same time. For many dental insurances plans, your appointment may cover:
- Hygiene cleanings
- Dental fillings
- Dental crowns
- Oral examinations
- Basic x-rays
Use it Now or Lose it Later
We encourage patients to take advantage of their insurance benefits early rather than waiting until the end of the year. Many times, our schedules get booked up quickly with patients trying to take advantage of their insurance benefits and we run out of time to see last minute patients. By scheduling an appointment now, you can ensure you and your family are covered and enjoy a healthy mouth for the rest of the year.
At Aesthetic Family Dentistry, we offer basic hygiene cleanings and preventative treatments that fit within most dental insurance plans. For those that require more advanced care, our team is trained and skilled at offering comprehensive dental care. While many advanced treatments are not covered by insurance, the basic hygiene appointment will be, so your overall cost will still be much lower than without using your insurance benefits at all.
