Use it or Lose it! – Dental Insurance Benefits

Girl with money

Use it Or Lose It – Dental Insurance Benefits You’re probably wondering what does, “use it before you lose it” mean. Did you know that at the end of the year any dental benefits you have not used are wiped away and your insurance benefits for the new year kick in? Which means you may be throwing away hundreds of dollars every year! By using all or as much of your dental benefits before the new year, you can be saving your family money. You never know if your child will need the whole of your benefits with unforeseen procedures, like a fractured tooth in the playground in the following year.

There are some dental insurances that run on a fiscal year, but the majority of dental insurances run on a calendar year. Which means that on January 1st any dental benefits you had on December 31st gets reset, very few plans roll over those benefits.

If you have a calendar year plan, you should call our office and we can work with you and your dental insurance in order to maximize your benefits.

We know you have a ton of activities to coordinate every day. We’re here to help you be able to squeeze in that dental appointment smoothly!

Call and talk with Bernadette or Laura they can guide you how to maximize your dental benefits before they expire December 31st.

See below for a list of ways to “use it before you lose it”.
• PREVENTATIVE CARE:   Mouth Guards to stop the uncontrolled grinding; Annual Exams, 2 cleanings anytime in the year (there may even be some that allow more). How about your children? Cleanings and protective Sealants.

• RESTORATIVE: What may be a simple cavity that only needs only a filling, can turn into a crown or even the premature loss of the tooth.

• “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” And postponing that dental treatment can run the risk of more extensive & costly treatment in the future. Taking care of any dental issues now, can help prevent problems from getting worse and or more expensive.

• TOOTH REPLACEMENT: Crowns, Bridges, Dental Implants, Partials, Dentures. Your yearly deductible also resets in January. Chances are, you have already met that deductible this year, and if you still have benefits remaining it would be a good idea to use those benefits, without having to pay that deductible again the following year.

Thank you to all our patients for leaving us reviews this month!

“I’ve been going to Dr. DeLuca for years, and it’s been the best office I’ve been to. I’m not too fond of dental work, so they let me wear headphones to drown out the anxiety-producing noise of their dental equipment. They are patient and understanding. Would recommend!”

– Maria Guzman

“The dentist I had gone to for 40 years retired, so I needed to find a new one. After some research, I decided on Impeccable Smiles. Very pleased after my first visit. Dr. DeLuca and her staff were terrific!

– Rich Junkermann

“It is always a great experience for my husband and me to be treated at Impeccable Smiles. Dr. DeLuca and the hygienists are always kind, patient, detailed, and fun! It helps us forget the pain! The front staff is also always cordial and knowledgeable!”

– Yvonne Cadiz
