It’s hard to believe that it is the end of the year already; it has certainly gone by fast! If you still have dental benefits or participate in a Flexible Spending Account it’s not too late to get scheduled for treatment and take advantage of these benefits before the end of the year. In many cases, any benefits left in these accounts at the end of the year are lost and these are benefits that you have already paid for.

Some patients may have treatment that requires completing treatment in phases. Careful planning in 2014 and 2015 can maximize benefits and potentially reduce out-of-pocket cost instead of waiting until 2015 to complete all recommended treatment, depending on individual patients’ needs and insurance benefits.

Other factors like covered cleanings that you have not used, deductibles etc. may result in your benefits being lost. Don’t let your unused benefits expire! Your dental care is important to us and we want to make sure you get the care you need. If you or anyone in your family has been putting off your dental work, please call our office as soon as possible. If you have questions regarding your remaining insurance or would like to get scheduled before the end of the year, please call our office. If you are unsure of your dental needs, call us today, we will be happy to assist you.
