If you have dental insurance, now is the perfect time to come see Dr. Priti Naik, DDS before the year ends, when your plan will renew. Our team will help you to maximize your dental insurance plan.
Most dental plans cover preventive care, such as bi-annual cleanings and oral exams, at no charge to you. If you haven’t yet scheduled your checkup at the office of Dr. Priti Naik, DDS, it’s a good idea to schedule it before the end of the year to make the most of your dental benefits.
In addition, some dental plans cover other preventive treatments like fluoride treatments and dental sealants, so you can get preventive care for you and your children at a low cost. In the long run, seeing the dentist twice per year will also save you money by preventing common oral health issues like cavities and gum disease.
Another great reason to see Dr. Priti Naik by the end of the year is to max out your deductible if you need additional treatments like fillings.
Your dental plan has a deductible you must meet before your coverage kicks in. For example, if you had a $200 deductible, you’d need to pay $200 in out-of-pocket dental expenses before your dental plan begins to pay. Once you hit your deductible, your dental plan will usually pay for 100% of all covered dental treatments until you meet your yearly maximum, which is usually between $1,000-$1,500. This means that if you meet your deductible this year, you won’t have to pay any more out-of-pocket costs for dental care until you reach your annual maximum. If you have further questions about your dental plan’s deductible and yearly maximums, our team will gladly help you understand your dental benefits.
Halloween is behind us, but the winter holidays are all still on the way. By scheduling an appointment with Dr. Naik before the holidays enter full swing, you can prepare for the sweet treats of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Hanukkah, and keep your teeth healthy and bright for the new year!
