Dental Insurance Forms

As the end of the year looms closer, this is the perfect time to review the benefits of your dental insurance and make the most of it. If you are not familiar with the details of your insurance or your health savings account (HSA), you could be on the verge of losing money. Dental insurance policies usually reset every year, so if you have not taken full advantage of your benefits, you should consider scheduling end-of-year dental appointments now. Here are a few reasons why.

The Annual Maximum

Most dental insurance companies set an annual maximum for beneficiaries. Often, there is an annual maximum set for each person covered under the policy. Most often this amount is around $1,000 per person. If your insurance runs on the calendar year, the amount will reset on January 1st. The amount will reset after 12 months from the beginning of the plan year for policies that run on a fiscal year.

If the cost of your dental work exceeds the annual maximum, you will be responsible for paying the amount that is over. Some individuals choose to plan extensive dental work over the course of two years, in order to take full advantage of their annual maximum. This way they make the most of their dental insurance dollars. If you pay a certain amount for a deductible, keep in mind that it will also reset in the new year.

Deductibles

You may have a certain amount that you are responsible for before the insurance company begins to pay for your dental care. This is the deductible and it varies depending on the account you have. Some policies have a high deductible while others may have one as low as $50. If you have already had some dental work this year, you may have already reached your deductible limit. Keep in mind that preventive care, regular dental exams, some x-rays and professional cleanings are often completely covered by insurance.

Health Savings Accounts

If you have an HSA or flexible spending account, check to be sure you understand how it works. Some employers offer this benefit to their employees in order to save pre-tax dollars on health care expenses. This type of account can be very helpful; however, you can also lose money if it is the type in which the account needs to be used before the end of the year.

Keeping your oral health at its best is cost effective and good for your well-being and general health. It is the best way to keep dental bills at a minimum. Engineered Smiles will help you achieve your healthiest, most appealing smile. Call us today to schedule your appointment before the end of the year.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
