3 Reasons to Schedule a Dental Appointment by the End of the Year

3 Reasons to Schedule a Dental Appointment by the End of the Year

If you don’t already have dental appointments for your kids between now and the end of the calendar year, you may have good reason to schedule one. Here are three reasons to set up a dental appointment before the new year begins.

#1 Get Your Two Annual Cleanings

Your kids should be having two cleanings per year. Insurance will usually cover two. If your kids haven’t had both this year, you’re missing out on using your insurance to the full. Plus, two exams and cleanings a year is the standard for preventative care.

#2 Seek Care Before Annual Limits Resets

Have you hit the maximum out-of-pocket for the year on your dental insurance? If so, you want your kids to have anything they need to have done now while it won’t cost you anything. That means everything from exams to covered restorative work should be handled now rather than in January when you will be back to zero and paying your full share.

#3 Don’t Let Dental Issues Get Worse

If your child is complaining of a toothache or is dealing with another indicator of a dental problem, please know that dental issues rarely resolve on their own. Now is the time to seek care rather than waiting. Not scheduling an appointment promptly may make the difference between needing a filling or a root canal.
