Dental Insurance Benefits: Use Them or Lose Them!

If you haven’t yet used up all of your dental insurance benefits this year, Harrisburg Smiles is here to help you get the most out of your plan. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Cherukuri before the end of the year and make the most of your yearly dental benefits!

Note: Benefits vary depending on your provider. Make sure you understand your own dental plan. 

See the Top Two Ways to Maximize Your Dental Insurance Benefits

Wondering how you can get the most from your dental plan? Here’s how! 

  • Schedule your second oral exam of the year – Your dental insurance plan likely covers you and your family for two oral exams per year, along with teeth cleanings. X-rays are usually also covered once per year.

    By coming in for your second oral exam before the end of the year, you can make sure that you get the most out of your benefits. You and your family will keep your smiles healthy, without paying out-of-pocket.
  • Get any dental care you need before the end of the year – Once you’ve had an oral exam, this is the best time to get any additional oral care services you need, such as a filling, a night guard for teeth grinding, or dental bonding to fix a chipped tooth.

    Why? Because, chances are, you’ll hit your deductible, which is usually around $250-$500. Once you’ve paid this deductible out of pocket, the remainder of your treatment will be covered until you hit your maximum yearly benefit, which is usually between $1,000-$1,500. If you don’t use up this benefit, you’re essentially leaving money on the table! 

These are the two best things you can do to maximize the benefits of your dental plan. But remember, you’ll need to take action before the end of the year, or else your benefits will go to waste!
