We’re headed into the busiest time of the year. For students, the semester is about to end and finals loom large. For working people, there may be a last push to make those sales numbers. And everyone is starting to think about gift buying. The Kaukauna family dentist at Dental Expressions would like you to think about one more thing—using up your dental insurance benefits. As they do every year, dental benefits will expire at the end of 2016. Therefore, if it’s time for you or another member of the family to have a checkup or get that cavity filled, now is the time to schedule an appointment.
Dental Insurance Deadlines
The expiration date on your dental insurance benefits is intentional. Insurance companies know that a deadline encourages their subscribers to take action—especially when they’ve already invested premium payments for the privilege of having dental coverage. The portion of your benefits that is unused is simply unspent money that could have gone toward ensuring your healthy smile. Therefore, your wallet and your smile stand to gain when you schedule dental cleanings and exams as well as many restorative services when they are necessary.
Dental Expressions is an in-network provider with several popular dental insurance carriers. This means that Drs. Heil have negotiated pre-set fees for covered services. Once you’ve met your deductible and fulfilled the copayment, there’s nothing more you have to pay.
Dental Expressions is in-network with the following dental insurance carriers:
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Cigna PPO
- Delta Dental Premier
- Dental Wellness Partners
- Humana PPO
- Principle Life
- United Concordia
- United Health Care
Dental Insurance and Your Healthy Smile
Almost all dental insurance plans fully cover preventive dentistry. Why? Because like your Kaukauna dentist, the insurance companies know that prevention is key to having a healthy smile now and avoiding more complex and more expensive treatment later.
Along with daily brushing and flossing at home, dental checkups are the number one preventive measure. Those twice-yearly visits are more than a chance to have your teeth professionally cleaned, although just that goes a long toward preventing trouble. We’ll also check your teeth for signs of decay, assess the condition of your gums to help you avoid periodontal disease and do an oral cancer screening. Digital x-rays are recommended annually to find decay or infection below the surface of your teeth.
In addition, your insurance policy may also include a number of restorative procedures. Tooth-colored fillings, dental crowns, and implants and dentures are commonly covered.
