It’s hard to believe that 2019 is right around the corner! Now is a good time to consider utilizing your remaining 2018 dental benefits and/or healthcare flexible spending accounts, as most will expire at the end of December. Most dental benefits and healthcare flexible spending accounts do not roll over to the following year and unused benefit dollars for the current year are typically lost. So as the saying goes, “Use it before you Lose it!”. We know how busy families are today, but by coming in for a regular dental cleaning and examination, you may avoid future dental complications that may cause you to exceed future dental benefits. At Pediatric Dentistry North we are committed to the prevention of dental disease, and regular exams and cleanings are essential in that effort. Most private dental insurance companies allow 2 consecutive dental exams and cleanings in a year. If you are uncertain about the status of your dental benefits, we would be happy to contact your carrier on your behalf.
