Call Now To Schedule for 2022!
posted: Oct. 27, 2022.
Wow! It’s hard to believe we’re in the last quarter of 2022 already. It also means it might be time for you to take stock of what dental care you want or need and what benefits you have left so that you can schedule before the end of 2022 if it’s indicated. (Right now, we're booked out farther ahead than we used to be, so if you don't call soon, you may find we don't have appointments available or don't have enough time to complete your treatment before December 31st.)
Most dental insurances (but not all) run on a yearly basis. This means if you have x number of dollars a year that they will pay and you don’t use it, you lose the benefits—they don’t roll over to 2023. The money you haven’t used goes back into the insurance company’s coffers. Also your deductible (the amount you have to pay before the insurance kicks in) resets. If you’ve paid your dental deductible for 2022 and have other treatment to do, you will avoid paying your deductible again if you schedule before 2022 ends.
Another factor to consider is that many dental insurances allow 2 preventive dental check up visits a year that do not have to be 6 months or more apart (in some cases your deductible will not apply to this visit). If you've only had one n 2022, you may want to get that second one in before the end of the year.
It’s also a great way to try to beat the 2023 price increases!
