Use Them or Lose Them: Dental Insurance Benefits

We’re coming up on the end of the year, and that means it’s time to make the most of your dental insurance benefits by coming to see the team at Golden Gate Dental. If you’re not maximizing your dental insurance benefits every year, you’re leaving money on the table! 

What do we mean? Read on, and see why it’s a good idea to use up your dental insurance benefits at the end of each year. Then, schedule a consultation with Dr. Sosis in Golden Gate Park right away.

Note: Insurance coverage varies. Consult with your provider to understand your benefits.

Most Dental Plans Cover 2 Cleanings & Exams Per Year

First, just about every dental plan covers preventive care. You can get two cleanings and exams per year for no charge, and most plans also cover x-rays at least once per year. So, if you’ve only made time for you and your family to see Dr. Sosis once this year and you’re overdue for another consultation, this is the perfect time to come in.

Schedule an Appointment Before the Holidays Are in Full Swing

This is another reason why now is the perfect time to schedule your next appointment at our office. Halloween may be behind us, but holidays like Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and The New Year are all ahead of us. Pies, candy, cakes, and other treats are sure to be on the menu, along with cavity-causing sugars that may harm your oral health.

Seeing Dr. Sosis for a consultation and oral exam now will ensure that your mouth is in good health and that if we notice any cavities or other issues, you can have them treated before the holidays are in full swing.

School Breaks Make It Easier to Schedule Family Appointments

Things get hectic around the end of the year, but thanks to school breaks and vacation days, it’s easier to schedule dentist’s appointments in San Francisco without having to worry about missing school or work! Take a look at your calendar now, and we know you’ll be able to find a time that works for you, your family, and the team at Golden Gate Dental! 

Seeing the Dentist Now Lets You Maximize Your Yearly Benefits

Your plan has a yearly deductible, which is usually around $250-$500, and a yearly maximum, which usually tops out at $1,500. 

What this means is, once you spend your deductible on dental care like fillings, night guards, and other treatments throughout the year, your plan will pay for your remaining treatment all the way until you hit your yearly maximum.

By scheduling appointments for yourself and your family now, you can make sure that you make the most of your benefits if you need any dental treatment beyond your regular six-month exam and cleaning. These benefits roll over on January 1st, so it’s important to get care before then!
