Columbia Dentist Expiring-Insurance-Benefits1Wow…only 1 months left in 2012…as usual, the year just flew right by. It seems to go by faster and faster each year, doesn’t it? And for those of you with dental insurance, that means you have just about 8 short weeks to use your dental benefits before they’re gone for good. And you’re not alone!

There are many other patients out there who wait until the end of the year to use their dental insurance benefits, so it’s often difficult to get an appointment. By reading this post – and acting now – you’ll be one step ahead of everyone else.

Think of it like someone who decides to put a pool in their back yard. They don’t really think about it seriously until the weather gets hot, and when they do, they’re told that there’s a 3-month wait because they didn’t make the appointment sooner. Don’t let that happen to you with your dental work by putting it off and letting your benefits slip away.

This is especially important if you need multiple procedures done or need one that takes a few weeks to complete. For instance, if you need to have a root canal/crown done, you can get the pre-crown work done at the end of this year and have the crown finished at the beginning of 2013 to maximize your insurance benefits. If you’ve been told that you need some work done and haven’t done it yet, call our office or your insurance carrier to see what benefits you have available for the remainder of the year.

Whether it’s just time for your regular checkup, or you’re tired of looking at that chipped tooth or the nagging pain that just won’t go away, Columbia Dentist Expiring-Insurance-Benefits2longing for a brighter smile or are considering dental implants or veneers, now is the time to take care of your teeth.
