Today’s post is our friendly reminder that we would like to see you before the end of the year. That’s true for everyone that we haven’t seen in the past six months, but it’s particularly important for people with dental insurance.
Dental plans typically are designed to encourage patients to get preventive care, such as regular cleanings and exams. Benefits for those plans also typically need to be used in a specific year. In other words, use your insurance or you’ll be losing the benefits you’ve been paying for all year.
Schedule an appointment at the office Jennifer Perkins, DDS, in Huntsville, AL before the holiday rush. Call 256-801-0002 today.
Get The Care You Need & Deserve
If you have dental insurance, then odds are you are paying for it. It’s likely one of the deductions listed on your paystub. To put this another way, you should take advantage of the service you are paying to have.
You wouldn’t buy tickets to see the Crimson Tide or the Tigers and never go to a game. You wouldn’t buy a new vehicle and leave it in your garage.
Now, we aren’t going to pretend that going to the dentist is like going to watch your favorite team or going for a drive. However, you are paying for this service (through your insurance) whether you get a cleaning and exam or not. So, why not get the full benefit of your coverage?
Like we noted above, most dental policies are designed to prevent problems or at least catch them in the early stages. Because of these, most plans will cover all or most of the cost of routine care. The details vary from plan to plan, so check yours to see what is covered.
What If You Don’t Have Insurance?
We still want you to come visit. Everyone deserves to have happy, healthy smiles, and that’s what we want to provide for you and your loved ones.
It’s also why we offer flexible payment options for our patients. In addition to cash, checks, and credit cards, we also accept financing through CareCredit. This can make it easier to manage the cost of more complex treatments to improve or restore your smile.
Keep Your Healthy Smile
Dr. Perkins and the rest of our team want you to get the care you need and deserve. Our office in Huntsville, AL is designed to encourage healthy habits, so you can remain free from tooth decay and gum disease for many years to come.
We also have comfort amenities and sedation options to make treatment easier for patients with dental anxiety.
Regardless of whether you have dental insurance or not, we hope to see you and your loved one before the end of the year. Make plans to see our team at Dr. Perkins’ office before 2020 arrives.
