So 2019 has come and gone and you forgot to use your dental benefits. It’s frustrating! It feels like you threw money away, which you kind of did. So how do you avoid making the same mistake this year?

Here are some tips for using your 2020 dental insurance benefits:

 – Frist, if you don’t already have a dentist, find out what kind of insurance you have and what dentist is covered in your area. You’ll want to find out, what your deductible is, how much your copay might be and what is covered under your plan. A simple call to the 800 phone number on the back of your insurance card will answer any questions you may have. You can also call your dentist and they will be able to find out this information for you.

– Most plans pay for preventive visits. It’s a good idea to schedule one as early in the year as possible. This way you and your doctor can talk about what your dental needs are and plan your year out accordingly. You’ll be able to set appointments for future care, plus, starting the year out with a bright white smile is always nice.

-Once you have a plan for your yearly dental care, you’ll be able to budget accordingly and hopefully have a happy, healthy holiday season at the end of 2020 without having to worry about your lapsing dental benefits.
