Were you recommended treatment earlier in the year but decided to hold off for whatever reason? Or perhaps you have a tooth that might be bothering you but not all the time. Whatever the case may be, if you have dental benefits to use before year end, now is the time to call for an appointment.
Treatment such as crowns and bridges will take at least two visits to complete. We are not allowed to bill the insurance company until the treatment is complete. This is why it is important to begin your treatment by the beginning of November if you would like to use 2017 insurance dollars. Average length of time between visits for these types of procedures is 4-6 weeks.
If you have a treatment plan that you would like to start, please call the office and Julie or Rebecca can help you schedule. Most insurance plans require a pre-estimate for major treatment, so we can check to see if that’s been done already.
Procedures scheduled November 6 or later that require multiple visits may not be completed in 2017. We encourage you to schedule and utilize those insurance dollars that you’re paying for!
