You have tickets to see the Broncos. You paid for your tickets months ago so you wouldn’t have to worry about getting them on the day of the game.
When the day arrives, however, you don’t arrive early to tailgate. You don’t go to the stadium. In fact, you don’t even watch the game on television.
So, what exactly did you pay for?
Dental visits may not be as exciting as watching an NFL game. Yet, you should be asking what you are paying for if you have dental insurance and you don’t get regular dental checkups.
At Accura Dental, Dr. Murdock and the rest of our team wants to keep your mouth as healthy as it can be. We can only do that if you come to see us. This is one of the reasons we strongly encourage you to take advantage of your dental benefits before the end of the year.
Whether you need a routine checkup or restorative care, don’t miss your opportunity to do something good for yourself and your smile.

Being in-network vs out-of-network can affect how much you pay out-of-pocket for your care and treatment. This will vary based on your particular plan and provider. This will not affect the quality of the care or the type of services that are available to you.
All dental insurance plans are set up to encourage preventive care. After all, it is better for you to get a cleaning today to remove plaque and tartar, so you don’t come back later with an infected tooth or gum disease. As such, your plan may cover all or some of the costs of routine cleanings and exams.
If you do have a problem, most dental insurance plans also will assist with the cost of restorative care. You may have a deductible depending on your policy, but once that is met, having insurance can reduce the cost of repairing or replacing teeth.
The Clock is Running
You also should be aware that, in general, dental insurance plans are set up to provide benefits on an annual basis.
As an example, your plan may cover one or two dental cleanings per year. If you don’t make an appointment during that calendar year, then you have missed out on that benefit. You paid for it (just check your pay stubs for proof of that), but you didn’t actually use it.
More importantly, avoiding the dentist can allow small problems to build into something more serious in the year to come. Keep your smile in good shape by making an appointment before the new year arrives.
