use it or lose it: don’t let your benefits go to waste

You may have not realized but 2020 is just around the corner. While the holiday’s sneak up on us, it’s likely your calendar is continuing to fill up. Before you know it, you’ll be making a list of your New Year’s resolutions.

Some of you, may have postponed your dental treatment until now due to Summer holidays or the rush of back-to-school. The good news is, there is no time like the present to maximize your dental insurance plan before it renews January 1st.

Pending treatment can be completed before December 31st which means you will use up your maximum yearly limit. Remember, your benefit’s don’t transfer over to the next year, so if they lapse you’re paying your insurance company all those premiums for nothing. Not to mention, inflation means all services, including dental fees are subject to increase every year. Don’t worry, you still have a bit of room left in your schedule before the clocks strikes 12!

Even if you don’t require any treatment, why not schedule a dental cleaning or exam? Preventive dentistry is essential to your oral health and overall health. During these regular appointments, your dentist can detect oral issues early on before they have a chance to worsen. Catching dental issues early on could end up saving you time and money. Everyone can benefit from a dental cleaning, so if maximizing your plan before January 1st means scheduling a dental checkup, then so be it!

Don’t wait until next year to maximize your dental benefits and ensure good oral health, there is no better time than now.
