In December, we talked about the advantages of using your dental benefits before the year ended. Since we are early into 2014, we want to emphasize that point, making sure you remain in excellent oral health all through the year. Dr. Giamberardino is ready to help you make sure that all of your dental needs are taken care of, no matter how simple or complex.
Many people may not know that once the year ends, the benefits you accumulated throughout do not roll over to the next year. In order to start of 2014 on good footing, we recommend planning ahead and taking full advantage of your benefits before the end of the year. Since the American Dental Association recommends you visit your dentist at least twice a year, make it a priority to schedule your checkup appointments. The checkups are especially beneficial, as we take that opportunity to investigate your entire mouth, looking for any early signs of disease. If you were to put that off, the cost could end up being a lot more expensive and come out of your own pocket, versus having your dental benefits take care of the issue for you.
If you have a filling that needs to be restored, a new crown, or need to replace your dentures, it is important to use your dental benefits for that as well, as it gives you the opportunity to use up your annual maximums. All of this will end up saving you money down the road, and your mouth will be in better health because of it. Also, if you have a Health Savings Account (HAS) at your job, we will be more than happy to help you plan ahead for whatever dental needs you may have! If you have any questions, please call our office and we will be glad to help!
