It’s that time of year again! Summer is coming to a close and kids are heading back to school. The hot Raleigh heat is slowly starting to melt away. Before we know it, the year will be over. For those with dental insurance, it is time to renew, change plans, and begin thinking about remaining benefits for the year.
Most dental insurance plans run on a calendar year which means they will renew on January 1st. Therefore, each December our office receives several frantic requests to get in before the end of the year. If dental benefits do not get used, they simply disappear. Unfortunately, most dental insurance plans do not have rollover benefits. If patients do not schedule appointments before the end of the year, many needs go unaddressed due to the shortage of time before the holidays.
September is a great time to get in for a dental appointment! It is an ideal time of year for cleaning appointments. Moreover, if any restorative work is needed, there is still time to use insurance benefits before the end of the year.
If you have not been to the dentist this year, or longer, there is no better time to make an appointment! Getting a cleaning will make you and your teeth feel better!
Additionally, it is a great time to reevaluate your dental insurance options. If you are purchasing your own dental insurance, or even paying a portion towards a plan your employer provides, our new ACDC Dental Savings Plan saves you money!
