If you have dental insurance, then you’ve got a great benefit that can make going to the dentist very affordable. Making the most of your benefit by getting your insurance to pay for as much of your dental costs as possible is important. To do this, you’ll need to be strategic about visiting the dentist in Beaver Dam and Owensboro, KY. Here’s what to know.
1. See the Dentist Twice Per Year
Most dental insurance companies will pay for two dental cleanings in Beaver Dam and Owensboro, KY, annually. Go to the dentist twice yearly to keep your teeth as clean as possible and ensure that your insurance company provides you with as preventative maintenance as possible. Visits are supposed to be about six months apart, so plan your visits accordingly.
2. Know Your Annual Maximum Limits
Most dental insurance policies put a limit on how much they’ll pay for dental procedures annually. Know how much your policy will pay for your dental procedures. If you need dental work done on your teeth over multiple visits, and the procedure cost is more than your maximum limit, try to schedule the first visit near the end of December and the second visit in the new calendar year. Talk to your dentist.
On the other hand, if you need dental work done on your teeth and the procedure costs less than your maximum limit, do what you can to complete the entire procedure in the current calendar year.
3. Ensure Your Dentist Is In-Network
Be sure that your dentist is in your dental network and that your dentist takes your insurance. Dr. Travis Wilson Family Dentistry accepts many types of dental insurance. Find out if we take your type of insurance. Call today.
