Please feel free to give us a call at any time if you have any questions or concerns about financing your dental care.

Your Benefits Might Disappear — Use Them Now!

Dental insurance can be confusing. Did you know that some of your benefits may simply disappear if you do not use them by the end of the year? Insurance often works on a yearly cycle, and there are not any “roll over” benefits, so if you don’t use some of your benefits, they will not be available come January 1st. For example, many insurance plans cover two dental cleanings per year. If you only use one of them, you will NOT be able to use three next year. That means you AREN’T taking full advantage of your coverage.

We recommend understanding your benefits and using them before they run out! Now is the time to do that. You can call your insurance company or even check online to learn more about your benefits. Our office would also be happy to help you understand how insurance works. We accept most insurance plans and will even do a complimentary insurance check at your first visit.

What If I Don’t Have Insurance Coverage?

We also understand that not everyone has dental insurance. That’s why we offer a variety of other payment options to making financing your dental care as easy as possible. If you don’t have dental insurance, we have you covered! Check out our options below and give us a call if you have any questions.
