We hope that you are finding our new e-mail and text ability helpful. We appreciate your patience while we try to implement this new system. The purpose of this note is to point out a way in which you may be able to more fully utilize your benefits and to inform you of our office closure during the holidays.
Many of our patients have dental insurance, and we take pride in doing everything possible to help you make the most out of your insurance benefits. Insurance policies allow a certain dollar amount of coverage to be provided each year. If you do not use your coverage during the year, you lose those benefits (unused coverage does not "carry over" into the next year).
If you have outstanding dental treatment that you have not scheduled, it could be to your advantage to call us and schedule to have this treatment done before the end of the year, in order to utilize any outstanding benefits that you may have. If you need extensive dental treatment you may be able to complete your treatment in the New Year, to utilize back to back insurance benefits for 2012 and 2013.
We also want to let you know that we will be closed for the holidays from November 21-25, 2012 and December 21, 2012 through January 1, 2013. We will have emergency contact instructions avalable for the week of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve.
If you have any questions about this, or would like to schedule an appointment please give us a call at (925) 944-5151.
