In Dental Care

We at Rainbow Dental Center always support our patients by reminding and educating them on dental health and their dental insurance policy. Did you know that you could actually save hundreds of dollars by using your dental benefits before the end of the year? While some dental insurance plans run on a fiscal year, many others run on a traditional calendar year.

Your dental plan gives you a yearly (fiscal or calendar) maximum of what can be spent on your dental care on an annual basis.  This amount varies between insurance companies, and averages around $1000-1500 per person per year. These maximums reset at the end of the year, so if you have any unused benefits, they will be forfeited. Some dental plans also include a yearly deductible fee, so when your plan renews for the next year, you are required to pay your deductible again to start taking advantage of your benefits.

We encourage those who have not come in yet for a dental checkup to do so, to take advantage of the insurance coverage they have. It is important to get a dental check-up to avoid encountering any larger dental problems. A delay in dental treatment can progress a simple cavity filling into a root canal treatment or extraction. By completing your treatment before the end of the year, you will be able to maximize your insurance benefits and enjoy a better dental health.

Call us at 604-594-2779 or 604-594-2288 to find out if you have any remaining benefits for the year. We will be happy to schedule a consultation appointment or the next appointment for any pending treatment you may have on file with us. We have appointments available for the same day and will be open for the holiday season. We look forward to hearing from you!
