How to Maximize Your Dental Benefits

Your dental benefits won’t roll over to the next year so don’t let your dental benefits go to waste! Before another year comes to a close, here are some simple ways to take full advantage of your dental benefits and enjoy the gift of great oral health all year long.

  1. Understand Your Plan
  2. It’s important to understand your dental plan and keep track of how much of your benefits you’ve used for the year. Don’t have insurance? We offer an In-House Dental Plan to make dental care affordable for all of our patients. And if you ever have any questions about budgeting for your visit, our team would be more than happy to help you.

  3. Schedule Preventive Treatments Twice a Year
  4. Most dental benefit plans cover most, if not all, of the cost of preventive treatments, so it’s a great idea to schedule a cleaning and exam before the year is over. Furthermore, receiving preventive treatments means that you can potentially avoid more costly restorative procedures in the future!

  5. Get Started on Larger Treatments Early
  6. If you have a treatment that will take place over the course of multiple visits, then it’s wise to start scheduling them early in the year. This is especially true if you’ve met your deductible but haven’t reached your annual maximum yet. At Las Cruces Dental Solutions, we will strive to help you get the maximum benefit from your dental coverage. Even though it may be too late for some procedures this year, if you let us know what treatments you want in 2020, we can make them happen with ample time to spare.

  7. Ask Us If You’re Missing Anything
  8. At your next appointment, ask our team if there are any other treatments you’d benefit from before the end of the year. We love to answer questions about our services and how they can help improve the quality of your life!

Take advantage of your dental benefits—you worked hard for them! Remember, once the year is over, they’re gone.
