No, it's not a special promotion being offered by your dentist Columbia Dr. Gregory Wych. It's a tip – compliments of Dr. Wych - to be smart with your money by taking full advantage of your dental insurance benefits before the year ends on December 31.
Each year, thousands of patients leave money behind by not taking full advantage of their earned dental benefits. While the average annual maximum dental benefit is $1,000 many people spend several hundred dollars less than that in any given calendar year, thereby throwing money away.
Don’t get us wrong – your dentist Columbia is not suggesting that patients receive dental treatment they don’t need. But we often see patients who need treatment, but who let the year run out before getting the work done because they feel they’re too busy. And many of these patients have dental benefits just waiting to be used!
Another common reason patients miss out on dental benefits is avoidance or fear of the dentist. You may know exactly what needs to be done, but you just can’t bring yourself to make - or keep - your appointment. Our goal is to help you get the gentle, comfortable care you need. A trip to your dentist Columbia is nothing like it used to be when you were younger. Comfort-conscious technologies have made it easy and painless to get the dental care you need.
Waiting until you experience pain can mean more invasive and more expensive treatment. Most dental health issues won’t get better if you simply ignore them...instead they will get worse. What may be a simple cavity now, could turn into a root canal later.
Also, keep in mind that research continues to show a direct link between your dental health and your overall health. Regular dental checkups and getting the treatment you need are keys to not only a healthy smile, but your general health as well. And making the most of your dental benefits by scheduling before the year-end helps your wallet stay healthy, too.
We know you’re super busy at this time of year, but scheduling an appointment with dentist Columbia Dr. Gregory Wych only takes a minute. Isn’t it worth it to potentially save hundreds of dollars? Why not give us a call today while it’s on your mind? Your smile will thank you!
