Use your dental insurance benefitsSpring has sprung, summer is ending, and fall is fast approaching. As the year winds up to a close, many patients ask to be reminded to come in for one more appointment before their dental insurance benefits expire. Most of the time, your insurance benefits don’t roll over to the new year. Instead of losing those benefits, we’re happy to remind you to come in and take care of any cleanings, exams, or other treatment appointments you’ve been meaning to see us about.

Did you know?

  • Your dental insurance policy allows for a certain dollar amount of coverage to be provided each year.
  • If your maximum coverage benefit is not used during the year, you lose those benefits, because unused coverage does not carry over to the next year.

We know how busy families are today, but by coming in for a regular dental cleaning/exam or by having recommended treatment done, you may avoid future complications that could cause you to exceed future dental benefits.

If you haven’t used up your insurance benefits for the year, and you have diagnosed treatment or have had only one cleaning this year, we encourage you to make an appointment before the end of the year. Contact us so we can help you plan for your future dental needs.

If you are uncertain about the status of your dental benefits, we will be happy to contact your carrier on your behalf. We hope you find this reminder helpful.

With best wishes for continued, good dental and oral health,

Dr. Guthrie and the team at James River Family Dentistry
