We hope 2023 is off to a healthy start for you and your family! If you have dental insurance, now is a great time to plan out how to get the most benefit for your smile this year. Here are some tips on taking advantage of your dental coverage!

Understand your plan

You can check with your insurance provider to understand the details of your coverage. Usually you can get set up with an online portal that contains important policy documents, such as an Explanation of Benefits.

At Imperial Christina Dental Care, we accept a wide variety of payment options, including most major dental insurance plans. Our team will file all claims for you and track their progress so you don’t need to worry about that after your treatment.

We also offer flexible financing through CareCredit®, WellsFargo Health Advantage®, and The HELPcard®.

Schedule your cleaning and examinations early

Most dental insurance plans cover twice-yearly preventive cleanings and examinations. Make sure to contact your dentist’s office sooner rather than later to schedule your visits for the year, especially if you haven’t had a dental checkup lately. You’ll have a better selection of appointments and can plan your other activities around these important visits. Maintaining regular cleanings and examinations reduces your risk of developing dental issues and needing expensive treatments in the future.

Spread out expensive treatments between calendar years

Do you have an in-depth restorative treatment in store for this year? Depending on your unique situation, spreading it out between 2023 and 2024 may help you maximize your dental benefits between different plan years. We will work closely with you to figure out if this is a beneficial treatment strategy for you!
