Use Your Dental Benefits

Did you know that the health of your mouth largely indicates and affects your overall health? Nearly 48% of people with Dental Insurance do not use those benefits. Dental benefits are usually provided by employers at a cost to their employees per paycheck. Since you are paying to have the benefits, why not use those dental benefits to the max that you can? In most dental plans, the benefits that are provided do not roll over from calendar year to calendar year.

Flexible Spending Account (FSA): How Does This Work?

A Flexible Spending Account is an account provided by your employer that allows you to put away untaxed money toward any of your patient portion medical and dental expenses during the calendar year. If you have participated in an employer-provided FSA, don’t let your hard-earned money be thrown away by not using it! Here is an example of how your FSA money could be used. If you have a crown and your dental benefits estimates you will owe 50% of the total amount then you can use your FSA to pay your portion of the total expenses.

How Can I Maximize My Dental Benefits?

Whether you are a regular patient or one that has missed a visit here and there, guess what?! We don’t judge. So let us help you stay on track or get back on, either way, we don’t care.
