Hard to believe, but December is here already. We know it happens year after year, but somehow this month sneaks up more quickly than all the others. And with the month of December comes an important reminder: use your dental insurance benefits before they run out! Dr. Sheri McIntosh and her team of dental hygienists and dental assistants at Distinguished Dental in Keller, TX, don’t want your benefits to go to waste. So, if you need dental care, schedule an appointment now, so we can fit you in before the end of the year.
The overwhelming majority of dental insurance plans carry a yearly maximum, which is usually around $1,500. This maximum is intended to encourage you and your family to proactively schedule needed dental work in order to prevent bigger dental and oral health problems from developing down the road.
Most dental insurance covers two yearly dental cleanings and exams; a comprehensive set of dental x-rays; and a portion of any restorative dentistry treatment, such as a porcelain crown or a dental implant. Thus, if you don’t come to your Keller dental office twice each year, or if you don’t follow up with the restorative procedure that Dr. McIntosh recommends, then you are only leaving behind unused insurance benefits when the New Year rolls around. So, if you have dental insurance and are due for a dental appointment with Dr. McIntosh at Distinguished Dental, then be sure to schedule a visit before your benefits run out at the end of 2015!
Keller General Dentistry in 2016
Alternatively, if you’ve used up all of your dental insurance benefits for 2015, then Dr. McIntosh and the team at Distinguished Dental want to see you in January 2016 when your benefits renew again for another year. Dentistry is designed around preventing dental disease rather than necessarily reacting to a problem. Therefore, when you schedule a checkup in January, you are getting the New Year off to a good and healthy start. These visits not only give us the chance to refresh your smile with a professional cleaning and polishing, but we can also examine your mouth for any signs or symptoms of trouble, such as tooth decay, periodontal disease or even oral cancer.
