With the holidays just around the corner, you know that we are in the last quarter of 2021. It’s also a great time to schedule a dental checkup, believe it or not.

That is particularly important if you have dental insurance. Keep reading to learn why, and plan to visit Church Street Dental Arts in Goshen, NY before 2022 arrives. Call 845-606-0032 to set up your appointment.
You Paid For It, Now Get It
Imagine buying tickets to see your favorite musicians in concert. You mark the date on your calendar so you don’t forget. You know exactly where and when it will take place.
Yet, on the day of the show, you just stay at home. The concert comes and goes and you don’t even listen to your favorite songs that day.
Would you consider that ticket purchase to be a waste of money?
We recognize that going to the dentist probably isn’t as fun as going to see your favorite musical artists perform live. Nevertheless, you are paying for dental care if you have dental insurance.
Most policies are designed to encourage you to come in for regular dental checkups. After all, it is easier on your oral health and your bank account to prevent problems or to treat them as soon as possible.
Think about it. Do you want to avoid a cavity or get a filling? Do you want a filling for tooth decay or get a root canal after your tooth has become infected?
When You Visit the Dentist Does Matter
If you are fortunate to have dental insurance through your employer, you may not be aware of the changes that can occur from year to year. What is covered this year can change next year even if you sign up for what you think is the same plan with the same provider.
Dental benefits are typically tied to a specific time period, and more often than not, that is the calendar year. In other words, your benefits expire. If you don’t use them, you lose them.
