What’s the Big Deal?

Celebrate the New Year by

The National Association of Dental Plans estimates that only 2.8 percent of people with dental PPO coverage reach or exceed their annual deductible. Other dental-savvy patients rely on a Flexible Spending Account to assist with both oral and overall health care with pre-tax dollars. It’s important to know that if you don’t utilize your FSA funds in time, this money could also go to waste. Most dental insurance plans and FSAs will reset after December 31, 2022, so you’ll want to reach out to our dentists in The Woodlands to see how we can help.

Take a Tip From Us

If anything, here are some key ideas you’ll want to keep in mind:

  1. Prevention is best for us all. – Your teeth, your dentist, and your wallet will thank you when you focus on stopping more costly issues before they start. Most dental plans cover preventive care up to 100 percent. If you’re behind, get ahead and call us for an appointment. 
  2. Think and plan ahead. – When you see your The Woodlands dentist in the summer or fall, talk to us about your needs and goals. We can work on a clear action plan for your treatment before the year closes. Schedule around before the holidays to add less stress before we say goodbye to 2022. 
  3. Know your rights. – Don’t hesitate to ask us to review your dental insurance benefits and coverage. We understand how confusing it can be to understand what things mean and how much things cost. Our office can help navigate you to the proper people and resources!

Do you have more questions than answers? Let us know! You can call The Woodlands Dental Group or reach out online. We’ll respond as soon as we can to schedule an appointment or some time to talk. Remember us for all your dental needs, from grown-up teeth transformations to gentle Woodlands pediatric dentistry
