A New Year Means New Dental Benefits!

January 21, 2022

January is often a time of reflection and goal-setting. What changes would you like to make in 2022? You may be considering how you can exercise more, eat healthier, or spend less time with screens. How about improving your oral care? Your oral healthcare should include daily brushing and flossing, as well as routine dental visits.

Your Yearly Dental Benefits

If you didn’t take advantage of your dental insurance last year, 2022 provides you with another opportunity to get the most out of your dental benefits. For most dental insurance plans, January marks the start of a clean slate in your dental benefits, maximum, and deductible. Remember, unused dental benefits don’t roll over to the next year!

Coverage for Preventive Dental Care

Visiting the dentist early in the year is the best way to start using your benefits. An initial visit at the beginning of the year can help you plan out recommended or desired dental work. If you procrastinate scheduling, it will be 2023 before you know it and you won’t have utilized your insurance benefits!

Depending on the type of dental insurance you have, there can still be costs associated with your treatment. Many plans cover routine preventive services, such as cleanings, exams, X-rays, and a fluoride treatment. These preventive treatments will help protect you from dental disease and its associated costs!

To reduce the risk of surprise dental expenses, keep up with your daily oral hygiene routine at home and check with your insurance provider about what services they cover.
