2017 will soon be coming to a close, and so will your dental benefits. I wanted to write and remind you to schedule your cleaning, exam and any other dental procedures as soon as possible in order to fully utilize your 2017 insurance benefits. Your benefits, as well as healthcare flexible spending accounts, may expire at the end of December. Unlike medical insurance, healthcare flexible spending accounts and most dental insurance plans do not roll over to the following year. As such, any unused benefits dollars for 2017 will be lost.
Last year many patients took advantage of their flexible spending accounts to get started on implants.—a clear choice over dentures and even bridges!
We know how busy families are today, but by coming in for regular dental cleanings and exams you may avoid dental complications that may cause you to exceed future dental benefits. At our practice we are committed to the prevention of dental diseases, and regular exams and cleanings are essential in that effort.
As the end of the year approaches, calendars get busy and things get put off. Give us a call today so that we may book your appointment to best suit your schedule. We want to help you to maximize your benefits with the best dental treatment available. Remember, it is always best to catch any problems before they get too large!
We are looking forward to seeing you soon.
With best wishes for continued good health,
Dr. Woo and Team
P.S. Don’t forget that most dental insurance plans are “use it or lose it!” Don’t put it off any longer – call 301-933-1833 today!
