2018 is quickly coming to a close, and December 31st marks the end of the plan year for most dental insurance companies.
If you have dental insurance, your policy allows a certain dollar amount of coverage to be provided to you each year. If your maximum coverage benefit is not used during the year, you lose those benefits because unused coverage does not carry over to the next year. The good news is you can still take advantage of your dental benefits before they run out.
Most dental plans allow teeth cleanings two times per year. If you are due for a cleaning, have dental treatment pending or feel you may need treatment and you haven’t maxed out your insurance benefits for the year, we encourage you to call and schedule an appointment before the end of D ecember.
