Christmas is just around the corner, which means your to-do list is likely becoming quite thin. Unfortunately, if you forgot to place the task of checking your dental insurance benefits on that list, you might be in for quite a shock in the New Year. Allow us to provide you with some helpful tips regarding what you need to do to make sure you’re making the most of your dental health for 2015.
Tip #1: Call Your Insurance Company
Frist, you should call the company that carries your dental insurance, unless you have your coverage book handy. You see, your benefits will only last through the end of this year, which means you are almost out of time to schedule any type of care with us, while receiving your 2015 coverage. Since this can get tricky, we often suggest contacting a customer service representative for the specific answers you seek.
Tip #2: Review Your 2015 Care
Now, think back on 2015 and your dental care. Did you do everything you were supposed to do for effective preventive care (such as visiting us two times for your checkup and cleaning)? Was there something you have been meaning to schedule but you keep forgetting (like a filling)? Figure out the details, so you can determine whether you still need to use remaining dental insurance benefits before 2016 arrives.
Tip #3: Call Us
Once you are ready to schedule an appointment – or if you simply cannot remember when we last saw you – please give us a call. We can help you sort out your schedule and plan your next visit.
