Most people don’t visit their dentist during December because they assume that their oral health is less important during the holiday season. In reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Many dental insurance plans only cover a portion of preventive dental care, such as cleanings and exams. If you have dental insurance, your plan could renew at the end of every year. This means you could potentially get a whole new year of benefits to use toward your dental care! Additionally, many plans reset at the beginning of a new year, so any unused benefits can roll over to the next year. You’ll have more time with your plan’s remaining funds at the end of the year, so be sure to schedule those much-needed appointments before the end of 2022!
The end of the year is a busy time for the dental office, and it can be hard to get an appointment when you need one. However, when many people go on vacation for the holiday season, the offices see an influx of cancellations as people cannot make it to their appointments. This could be a great time to schedule your appointment for a cleaning or cosmetic procedure you need before the end of the year. That way, you can guarantee a time that works best with your schedule without having to worry about waiting in an overcrowded waiting room with other people who can’t make their appointment.
While we’re busy helping patients prepare holiday meals and treats, it’s also a good time of the year for booking appointments before the year is over. The days before and after Christmas are slower than normal, which gives us time to squeeze you in when we can. Not only that, but many people have to time off around the end of the year, which means they might be looking for a last-minute appointment before they have to take off. Plus, if you start any treatments at the end of the year, you’ll be able to use those benefits before you renew in the new year. That way, you can get the most out of your insurance!
