It’s hard to believe that we’re already at the end of the year. 2021 flew by in a flash, didn’t it? As you’re slowly getting ready for the holidays and wrapping up any final things you need to accomplish before the year’s end, we wanted to take the time to remind you to make the most of your dental benefits.
Use ‘Em or Lose ‘Em
There’s a phrase you’ll often hear when it comes to your dental benefits at the end of the year: If you don’t use them, you’ll lose them. Many dental insurance plans are set up in a way that whatever benefits you haven’t used by the end of the calendar year will expire rather than rolling over into January. That means that you’ll lose all of those hard-earned “dental dollars” you have access to after meeting your deductible. You’ve made the investment with your health by paying for your insurance each month, and now is the time to reap those literal benefits!
Ways to Maximize Your Dental Benefits
One great way to maximize your dental coverage benefits is to schedule a routine teeth cleaning. Most dental plans include two dental cleanings each year, and if you haven’t had any this year or have only had one, then there’s no better time than now to schedule the other. Another way to use your benefits before they expire is to get that restorative dental treatment you may have been putting off. There’s no better way to ring in the new year than with a beautiful, healthy smile that you’re proud to show off!
