Get Insurance Aware: 3 Benefits to Having Benefits

June is bustling, filled to the brim with some of our favorite holidays: National Smile Month, Summer Solstice and Father’s Day. Our favorite celebration this month is probably a day you’ve never heard of – June 28th is National Insurance Awareness Day.

Why you should literally put your money where your mouth is.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Many types of insurance, like car insurance, focus on the worst-case scenario. It’s hard to imagine your auto insurance covering routine maintenance, such as an oil change. 

Contrarily, dental plans focus on preventive care. Here’s why: most dental problems and diseases are nearly 100% preventable. Regular check-ups allow your dentist to check for early signs of more serious problems. It’s important to remember that at-home oral hygiene habits are just as important as regular check-ups.

Anything can happen.

While it’s true dental insurance focuses on preventive services, emergencies can happen. You never know when a chipped tooth will strike. There are many types of dental plans to fit  your needs. Shop around for a plan that’s perfect for you.

A penny saved is a penny earned.

Would you rather pay money out-of-pocket for a preventive dental exam or nothing at all? We’re fairly confident we can guess your answer. Most dental plans encourage preventive care by covering 100% of the cost of initial exams, cleaning, X-rays, sealants and fluoride treatments. 

Pat yourself on the back – you’re officially dental insurance aware!
