Dental Insurance & The End Of The Year


The busy holiday season is sneaking up on us and with all of the activities many patients wait to schedule their dental appointments. While the end of the year is a few months away it’s important to remember to use your dental benefits.

Did you know that many dental benefits start over at the beginning of the year? While this does sound like great news, don’t forget that you may lose what benefits you have not used for this year when the new year rolls around. Here’s an example: Let’s say you have $1500 in dental benefits for each calendar year. You have used $400 in those dental benefits so far. Your remaining benefits are $1100. At the end of the year the $1100 worth of dental coverage in 99% of cases will not roll over.

What does this mean for you?

If your dental provider has planned treatment needs for you, why not use those benefits? Many patients remember to use their benefits in December when most dental practices are at their busiest times. We suggest to take care of all dental needs as fast as you can. Addressing dental issues when they are small helps to prevent those issues or treatment into growing into bigger needs. It also helps to ensure that you can be seen in a timely manner.

As the busy months approach don’t forget to schedule your dental appointments. If you are looking for a great dentist in the South Charlotte area Premier Dentistry is now accepting new patients.
