Have you scheduled your end of year dental cleaning and exam yet? If not, we urge you to do so, as appointment times are filling up fast! To maximize your insurance benefits, you will want to get on our books as soon as possible before the new year begins.

Did you know that the National Association of Dental Plans determined that only 2.8% of people who currently have PPO dental plans actually reached or went over their plan’s annual maximum? If you are one of the people who have a plan and is not getting the most out of it, you are leaving money on the table and your smile is also taking a loss.

Getting a cleaning and exam is good for you and your loved ones in a variety of ways. These preventative measures help to prevent cavities, tooth loss, and gum disease while brightening your smile and freshening your breath. They also support your overall health by helping to lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.

Since most insurance benefit plans start over after December 31 and the unused benefits don’t roll over into the new year, we invite you to take advantage of your benefits now. You will also be adding up the savings to your oral health in the long run by potentially avoiding costly and invasive procedures down the road.

Our dentist, Dr. Samuel Richey and our Lighthouse Dental & Orthodontics team in Riverton, Utah, are always here for you and your family. Please give us a call at 801-871-3499 today and make the most of your smile!
