While we’re still firmly in the middle of 2016 you shouldn’t forget about 2017. After all, with school starting and the madness of the holiday season merely a couple of months away, this year will be over before you know it. Why do we bring this up? Many of our clients are dentists or dental specialists, so we want to make sure they remember to remind their patients to use their 2016 dental insurance benefits.
Never Too Early
As anyone with dental insurance knows, once the year ends so do your benefits. As a result, you should remind your patients to schedule visits within the next couple of months for treatment, whether preventive, restorative, or otherwise. In reality, once the holiday season hits, few people will have the time. The end of the summer and the fall is a perfect time to undergo treatment and visit the dentist. If children in your community haven’t returned to school yet, let parents know that this is also a great time to have their little ones’ smiles examined before school starts, as well as a great time to use their benefits before 2016 comes to a close.
