    Are Your Dental Benefits Expiring?

    You’ve paid your dental premiums all year, so it’s important you take advantage of your benefits, and not let them simply go away.  Most insurance companies provide policies that follow the calendar year.  So, if your benefits aren’t used by December 31of this year they may be lost for good.

    Use Them or You’ll Lose Them!

    We’d like to take a moment to remind you about your expiring benefits and explain why you should use them before year’s end.

    Four Reasons Why You Should Use Your Benefits Before They Expire:

    • You’ve already paid your premiums
      All year you’ve paid for dental benefits.  If you don’t use them, you’re wasting your money as well as losing a valuable resource .
    • Your deductible is renewing
      Deductibles renew annually just as insurance benefits renew.  If you have any outstanding treatment on your treatment plan, you may be able to save the cost of next year’s deductible.
    • Dental problems don’t get better over time
      Remember, tooth decay doesn’t go away or heal itself. Putting off dental care may lead to more expensive procedures later. It’s best to receive treatment when a small issue is identified.
    • Dental procedure fees increase over time
      Just as the cost of living increases, so does the cost of providing excellent dental care.  Occasionally, our fees need to be adjusted.

    Our schedule is beginning to fill as year-end approaches, but there’s still time to take advantage of your dental benefits.  Call us at (828) 631-3283 to schedule an appointment or visit our website to request an appointment online.
