End Of Year Dental Benefits

As you are aware, it is important to us to provide our patients with high quality dental care at affordable fees, and we are proud of our dedication to our patients.  We take pride in making you look and feel your best through excellent dental care.

We are not associated with your insurance company in any way; however, we would like to help you maximize your insurance benefits.  Each year you are allowed a maximum dollar amount for dental benefits by your insurance carrier.  These benefits do not carry over from year to year, so if you do not use all the benefits allowed to you in a given year, you lose the unused portion.

We are sending this letter as a courtesy to our patients who have insurance.  We encourage you to schedule any incomplete dental treatment or your periodic cleaning appointment before the end of the year to utilize your insurance benefits.

If you have any questions about your dental care, benefits, or if you would like to schedule an appointment, please feel free to call our office.  We look forward to hearing from you.

When to take your child to the dentist

According to the American Dental Academy, you should take your child to see a dentist as soon as his or her first tooth appears or no later than their first birthday. There are several reasons to take young children to a family dentist including:

– Early dental visits prepare your child for general dentistry procedures, thus reducing instances of fear as they age
– Twice-yearly visits to the dentist are crucial for ensuring proper tooth development
– Early childhood dental visits can detect potential problems such as tooth decay
– As your child ages, these visits will include instructions in proper at-home tooth care
– A dentist familiar with your child’s teeth and oral development can better spot early signs of malocclusion and other potential problems

While many of these benefits come as your child ages, helping your child understand that the dentist’s office is a safe place is by far the most pressing reason to have them see a dentist early on. Dental phobia is a serious issue that affects millions of Americans. These fears are often the result of early experiences at the dentist’s office and can ultimately prohibit your child from seeking necessary dental care. Working closely with an experienced, compassionate family dentist, you can help ingrain good habits in your child, and work to make sure they continue to feel comfortable well into the future.
