dental insuranceWhile fall has only finally started to arrive, it’s important to be looking ahead towards the end of the year. At South Shore Dental Care, we want to urge our patients to plan ahead and make sure they’re taking full advantage of their dental benefits for the year.

When the calendar year ends, so do your insurance benefits for that year. Your dental insurance is there to help ensure and maintain the continued health and care of your teeth and gums, so make sure you’re taking full advantage of this. If it’s been a while since your last dental checkup appointment, this is the perfect opportunity to come and visit us now. Also, taking the time to ensure your smile is clean will help reduce your risk for other dental health problems in the future.

If there’s any dental work you’ve been putting off and you have money left in your insurance plan, now is the time to use it. By planning ahead you’ll avoid the rush to use dental benefits at the end of the year, making it simpler to get the appointment time that works best for you. Give us a call today to learn more or schedule your next appointment. We accept a variety of financing options, including most dental insurance plans, CareCredit and Chase Health Advance.

Use Your Dental Benefits Before 2012 Is a Thing of the Past

November 15, 2012

A lot has to happen before the holidays arrive. Everyone’s list is different, of course, but with Thanksgiving around the corner, and then Christmas and New Year’s after that, they can also look very similar. There are gifts to buy, foods to prepare, travel plans to make, and much more. All of which means that a last-minute dental checkup and cleaning can easily fall by the wayside.

That’s why we want to encourage you to squeeze in one last visit to our Massapequa dental office before the year is over.

For most patients, dental benefits don’t rollover from one year to the next—they go back to square one. That means, when 2013 rolls around, you have a new deductible to meet and a new annual maximum.

Your deductible is what you have to pay in order to receive the true benefits of your insurance. If you’ve already paid it for this year, then you may still have some of your annual maximum to put towards important care.

Don’t lose out.

If you know you need a checkup, a cleaning, or another service, then call South Shore Dental Care today for an appointment. Our doctors offer great general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry for patients from Massapequa, Long Island, Merrick, Bellmore, and Wantagh.
