Don’t Let Your Dental Benefits Go Unused
10/26/2016
Our Business Team helps make your dental treatment affordable. Elizabeth, Erin, and I are very experienced helping our patients maximize their dental benefits. Most dental benefit plans have a defined annual benefit that is lost if not used. Think of your dental benefit as a savings account you can use towards needed dental treatment, but the benefit expires, usually at year end. That’s right, if you have a $1000.00 annual benefit and only use $750.00, you forfeit the $250.00. Now, if you don’t need any dental treatment, that’s fine, but if you do need treatment, that is money you are forfeiting. Our Business Team is happy to help you maximize the use of your dental benefit. It is part of what we do to help you keep your teeth for a longer lifetime.
