You've Paid for Your Dental Insurance - Now Use It!

Need help navigating your dental insurance?

While your dental insurance benefits may be confusing to navigate, the staff at Excellence in Dentistry can help you make sense of your dental insurance in order to maximize your benefits for your best oral health.  Most insurance companies,  understanding the benefit of preventative dental care  (your dental cleaning with your dental hygienist and your oral exam and x-rays with your dentist) cover at least two dental cleanings and exams per year. Every plan has different coinsurance rates and maximums. Select the best family dentist by calling our office!  Our helpful staff can obtain your benefit information for you, and based on your treatment plan, help you maximize your benefits and complete your dental treatment.  Don't miss out on the benefits you are entitled to.  

According to a recent study by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), from 2019 to 2020, "the percentage of adults aged 18−64 years who had a dental visit during the past 12 months decreased from 65.5% to 62.7%."  Skipping your dental appointments for exam and cleaning opens the door to problems down the road. When oral hygiene is neglected the amount of bacteria in your mouth increase and create a buildup of tartar and calculus.  The bacteria release acids that inflame the gums, erode tooth enamel, and cause cavities.   Dr. Nancy Rotroff and Dr. Gerard Wasselle of Excellence in Dentistry in Fort Lauderdale encourage you to keep your dental health on track! Preventative appointments, including exams and cleanings, are typically fully covered by insurance.  Routine check-ups with your dentist in Fort Lauderdale are an integral part of your oral health routine.  Have you visited your dentist and hygienist twice this year for your exam and cleanings? If not, call Excellence in Dentistry at 954-928-1666 now to get on the schedule before the end of the year. It’s important to book your and your family members’ cleanings now before schedules fill up.

Why is it important to USE my dental benefits?

1. An ounce of prevention: 

Regular dental cleanings and exam are considered preventative procedures by your insurance company.  Your dental cleaning helps to prevent tooth decay by removing the plaque and tartar that cause cavities.

2. You've met your deductible: Your annual deductible resets every year.  If you have met your deductible already for the year, you will only need to pay your copay for any further dental treatment.  If you want until next year, you will have to pay your deductible again. 

3. Procrastination can cost you money. Delaying or avoiding simple treatments like dental fillings now could potentially be more expensive later. Prevent costly and serious treatments by making use of your dental insurance by scheduling an appointment to complete dental work today. If you are searching for a "restoration dentist near me," don't delay - call Excellence in Dentistry today.

4. Your oral health is linked to your overall health. Research has shown a direct correlation between the condition of your oral health and your overall health. When we neglect our oral health, we are prone to both gum disease and dental decay (cavities). Gum disease is linked to a number of illnesses including heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, osteoporosis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Keep your oral health at its best by scheduling a dental appointment for cleaning and exam with Excellence in Dentistry today!
