Don’t waste your money!
Each year your dental benefits reset. In addition, your FLEX account expires. In both cases anything you have not used will be lost. This is your money you have worked so hard for and is being thrown out.
The end of the year is a great time to take advantage of these benefits to get the best bang for your buck!
Regular 6-month appointments
Most dental insurances allow for 2 cleanings and exams per year. If you are avoiding the dentist then you are typically wasting a benefit you or your employer is paying for.
In addition, keeping regular 6-month dental appointments helps catch problems before they become something bigger. If you can catch a cavity when it is small it can usually be taken care of with a filling instead of a crown. This alone can save hundreds of dollars.
If you haven’t had a dental cleaning in the last 6 months give us a call and we can reserve an appointment for you.
Sometimes we don’t get good news at a dental checkup. Being told you need a crown or root canals is never fun and if you have multiple it can sometimes be overwhelming. The end of the year is a great time to get started on these treatments because you use up your remaining benefits for this year plus use benefits that get renewed when the new year rolls over.
If there is treatment you have been holding off of, give your friendly Helena neighborhood a call and we can help schedule your appointments to maximize your benefits.
