Are You Playing the “Waiting Game” With Your Dental Benefits?

added on: August 31, 2020

Your Woodlands dentist knows 2020 has kind of been an interesting year, and it’s hard to believe that 2021 is just around the corner. It’s not a bad time to think about your smile and when was the last time you saw your dentist in The Woodlands for a cleaning and checkup. We are sending out this simple reminder simply because this year will be over before you know it and we want to make sure you get the most out of your dental benefits or flexible spending account (FSA). 

Ask yourself:

Do my insurance benefits expire at the end of the year? 

Have I met my deductible but never got around to taking advantage of it? 

Will I have to start all over in January with my FSA?

A New Year. A New Deductible.

As your trusted Woodlands dental office, we like to make it easy to check your benefits and be proactive about your oral health. Remember, once the new year is underway, new deductibles will apply. That’s why there’s no better time than right now to schedule some well-deserved dental work. (Don’t you want to look refreshed and ready for the holidays?)

How Can We Help You?

Whether it’s something as simple as a cleaning or a more transformative treatment like cosmetic bonding, your Woodlands dentist knows you care too much about your smile to throw away the dental benefits you paid for all year long. Remember, most FSA’s allow up to $500 in unused funds to be rolled over into your 2021 plan. To this date, the Internal Revenue Services has established an FSA contribution limit of $2,750. 

Make it Your Year of Total Wellness

Your mouth. Your body. Your health. Everything is connected, so start with your smile and set yourself up for refreshed success in the new year. Your Woodlands dentist and fellow team members have some of the most up-to-date, state-of-the-art dental technology available combined with undeniable skill and a passion for precision. Call us today to schedule your checkup, cleaning, or appointment for that treatment you want to complete with your Woodlands dentist before 2020 comes to a close.
