When it comes to casual conversation, there are a few topics that it’s often wise to avoid. Politics and religion are two of them, and money rounds it out to a trio. Money is often a concern during the holiday season, do Polk City dentist Dr. Ryan Hussong doesn’t mean to ruffle any feathers by making it the topic of today’s blog. In fact, he’s trying to help you maintain top-notch dental health and stretch your heard-earned dollar as far as possible.
I want and need a lot of dental work, but I’m afraid I can’t afford it. Do you offer monthly payment plans?
Yes, Cornerstone Dental does offer convenient payment plans for our patients with our financial partner Care Credit™. We provide a variety of ways for you to pay for your treatment so that it fits comfortable into your personal of family budget. We always work with you to create the solution that accommodates you so you can have the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve.
What about insurance?
Knowing your dental insurance benefits is extremely important this time of year. Most dental insurance plans have a “use it or lose it” policy, meaning that any benefits that are unused by December 31 are gone forever. Most dental insurance policies cover two regular dental exams and cleanings per year for each insured person, so if you’re overdue for a dental checkup, check your dental insurance benefits right away. You may have a covered appointment floating around out there that you have no idea about. Even if money isn’t tight for you at the moment, don’t let your benefits go to waste.
If you’re unsure of the fine print on your insurance policy, give us a call at (515) 984-6001. We have a lot of experience helping our patients get the most out of their insurance, and we’ll be happy to help you decipher exactly what benefits you have and whether or not they were used in 2011. If you do have benefits left, don’t let them expire. Call our office immediately to reserve an end-of-the-year appointment.
We look forward to hearing from you and helping you kick off the new year with a healthy, beautiful smile!
