Today, we would like to remind you about these options. We would also like to talk a little bit about how dental insurance works and share a tip with you about how to use it before you lose it! Please feel free to give us a call if you have any questions or concerns. We’d be happy to help! We don’t want anything to stand in way of getting the care you need!

Getting the Most Out of Your Dental Insurance

Many people spend most of their lives never really understanding how their insurance works. Especially when it comes to dental insurance, many people misunderstand their benefits. One thing to remember about dental insurance is “use it before you lose it.” Many dental insurance plans offer a list of benefits that must be used within the plan’s year of coverage … or they simply go away. For example, many plans cover 2 dental cleanings every year. If you do not use them before December 31st, they simply vanish. There are no “roll over” benefits when it comes to dental insurance.

If you want to make the most of YOUR dental insurance plan this year, talk to your provider about any benefits that still can be used this year. We want you to get the most out of your plan … you are paying for it, after all. If you have any further questions about how dental insurance works in general, we would be happy to do our best to answer them.

What if I Don’t Have Dental Insurance?

If you do not have dental insurance, we promise that you are not alone. But that does not mean you can’t get the dental care you want or need! Here at 1st In Smiles, we offer a variety of payment options and special deals that can help you get the most for your money even if you do not have dental insurance. Let’s talk about these options and about how they can help you!
