Time flies, and before we know it, another year is coming to a close. As we approach the end of the year, it’s important to remind our patients about their dental benefits and Smile Plan savings. With the end of the year just around the corner, now is the perfect time to maximize your dental benefits and utilize those Smile Plan savings before they expire! 

Don’t wait until the last minute, as appointment availability may become limited as the end of the year approaches. Use this opportunity to address any dental needs you have and ensure your oral health is in good condition. Here are a few things to consider:

Review Your Insurance Plan

Before using your dental benefits, it’s important to review your insurance plan to understand what procedures and treatments are covered. Familiarize yourself with any limitations, exclusions, and/or waiting periods that may apply. This will help you make informed decisions about which treatments to prioritize and maximize the benefits available to you.

Progressive Dental Smile Plan: Maximize Your Savings

For those who don’t have dental insurance, we offer the Progressive Dental Smile Plan – an in-house savings plan designed to help you afford the dental care you need. The Progressive Dental Smile Plan offers significant savings and benefits, and all 2023 plans are set to expire on 12/31. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to take advantage of the plan before it ends!

Ensure Optimal Dental Health with Preventive Care

Utilizing your dental benefits wisely involves considering preventive care as a top priority. Instead of waiting for specific dental issues to arise, investing your remaining benefits in preventive treatments can be highly beneficial. These treatments, such as professional cleanings, fluoride treatments, and X-rays, play a crucial role in maintaining the health and longevity of your teeth. Luckily, most dental plans cover these preventive procedures. Moreover, it’s important to note that preventive care goes beyond just maintaining oral health – it can also help spot potential dental problems. By addressing these issues early on, you can save yourself from further complications and keep treatment costs to a minimum.

Maximize Savings on Essential Dental Treatments

When it comes to specific treatments like fillings, crowns, implants, or bridges, utilizing your dental benefits can significantly reduce the financial burden. Depending on the remaining benefits you have, you may be able to have a substantial portion or even the majority of the treatment costs covered. 

If your remaining benefits only cover a portion of the required procedure, there may be an opportunity to split the treatment into two phases. This way, you can address some of the necessary work before the end of the year, and postpone the remainder until the following year when your benefits reset. Although it is not always possible to divide a procedure, some dentists may be able to perform the work in stages, allowing you to manage the costs more effectively.

Spread the Word

Don’t keep this valuable information to yourself! Share it with your family, friends, and coworkers. Many people are unaware of the importance of using their dental benefits before the end of the year, and they could be missing out on potential savings. Encourage them to schedule their dental appointments and make the most of their benefits.

Make the Most of Your Dental Care Options

Whether you have dental insurance or not, it’s essential to make the most of your dental care options. If you have the Progressive Dental Smile Plan, be sure to utilize your benefits before they expire on 12/31. This is your chance to address any dental issues, receive preventive care, or invest in necessary treatments while enjoying significant savings.
