Year end insurance benefits
As the year comes to a close many of our patients have noticed that they did not use all of their insurance “benefits” for the year. Insurance benefits operate in a “use-it or lose-it” fashion, and hence on 1/1/16 all unused “benefits” will be lost for good. Many people still consider their dental insurance to be a helpful way to make their dentistry more affordable for them and their families, but it is unfortunate to see how many people neglect themselves throughout the year and do not make frequent dental visits or listen to doctors recommendations to have suggested dental treatment done in a timely fashion. Literally hundreds of patients call us during the last weeks of November asking to be seen, which we understand and are extremely thankful for, but unfortunately we can only accommodate so many people on a given day.
Our office employs three full time doctors and five hygienists. We are open 6 days per week, most weeks, and we never leave before 6PM. In short, we try to be available for our patients all year long. So don’t delay throughout the year. I can promise you that we will be booked all of December within the next few days. So if you are someone who has dental insurance “benefits” left over, call ASAP to reserve a spot in our schedule. Keep in mind also, That the end of the year also marks the holiday season and we are no different from our patients in that we want to spend some time with our families during this time, so we will be closed several days in a row to allow our team members time with their families. Call us now, if you haven’t already, so we can evaluate your dental benefits for 2015 and arrange for you to be seen before the end of the year to avoid losing what little your insurance gives you.
