As the year closes, it's a great time to review your dental insurance benefits. Make appointments early enough to make sure your family maximizes your hard-earned benefits. Your benefits usually renew annually and are not additive. So if you have 2000 worth of benefits this year and 2000 next year you will lose 2000 from this year if the benefits are not used. An exam is the best way to figure out what your needs are and plan out your care and benefits requirements. Do this early as demand increases at the end of the year and social distancing practices make appointment availability more scarce. Call us to make an appointment so we can make sure you and our family are cared for!
