Use Them or Lose Them: Annual Dental Benefits

A calendar and tooth model  Description automatically generatedAs we wrap up another year, it can be easy to become wholly occupied with hectic holiday plans and New Year's resolutions. For many, it also means coming to terms with the fact that their annual dental benefits are about to expire. At Coast Dental, we want to make sure that you don't miss out on taking full advantage of these benefits before January 1st rolls around.

Here are a few reasons why it's important to use up your annual dental benefits before they expire:

Maximize Your Investment

By investing in dental insurance, you've taken a step towards maintaining good oral health and preventing dental issues. Don't let that investment go to waste! Dental benefits usually reset on January 1st, which means any unused portion from the current year will disappear. By scheduling a visit to your dentist before the end of the year, you can utilize the remaining benefits and ensure that you've made the most of your investment.

Addressing Dental Problems Early

Regular dental check-ups allow your dentist to catch potential issues early on. When dental problems are left undiagnosed or untreated, they tend to worsen over time, leading to more complex and expensive treatments in the future. By using your dental benefits now, you can start to address any potential dental problems while they are still manageable and prevent them from escalating into more significant issues later.

Plan for Future Dental Needs

If you've been postponing any necessary dental work, now is the perfect time to get it done. Whether it's a routine cleaning, a filling, or a more extensive procedure, using your dental benefits before the year ends allows you to plan for your future dental needs. By addressing these needs promptly, you can start the new year off with a clean dental slate and ensure that any lingering dental problems are taken care of.

Changes in Coverage

Dental insurance plans often undergo changes at the beginning of each year. These changes may include alterations to coverage, deductibles, co-pays, or even the providers included in the network. By using your dental benefits before the year ends, you avoid any surprises or changes that may affect your coverage in the coming year.

At Coast Dental, we understand the importance of using your annual dental benefits before they expire. Our experienced dental professionals will make the most of your benefits and keep your oral health in check. Don't let your dental benefits go to waste!
