A Crazy Busy Time!
Things are getting busy for everyone around this time of year, but did you know that the holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year for your dentist? There are a few facts that you should consider when deciding whether you should come and see your dentist during this hectic time of the year.
Imagine if you had a bank account that had $2500.00 in it. Every single year no matter how much was left in the account it would revert to $2500.00 on Jan. 1st. Would you leave any of that $2500.00 in the bank account come Dec. 31st? Well that is the way that many dental insurance plans effectively function.
Most dental insurance plans operate on a calendar year basis with a “use it or lose it” benefit amount. If you haven’t used all of your dental insurance benefits for the calendar year you should consult with your general dentist to see if you need a cleaning or have some treatment pending that you have been putting off. The end of the year is approaching and you should make sure you get the most out of your dental insurance.
Most of us will be traveling this holiday season, seeing family and friends, or heading somewhere warmer; but, for those few that will still be in town during the holidays this is an excellent time to get the kids in to see the dentist for that end of year cleaning and checkup.
During the school year it may have been hard to arrange to get them out of school, but the winter break presents an excellent opportunity to get them in to see the dentist, and to get them out of the house for a couple of hours.
New Year’s Resolutions:
Everyone has made a few New Year’s resolutions in their time, but it is so passé to follow the crowd and wait until December 31st to get started on the list. Why not get a head start? Why not be avant garde, counter-cultural, and trend-setting? You want those straighter teeth and that whiter smile? Well there is no time like the present, give your dentist a call today and beat the New Year’s rush!
