Syracuse, NY (PRWEB) October 28, 2009
A healthy smile can help you look and feel your best this holiday season. Now is the perfect time to schedule a dental appointment if you're looking to get that new smile in time for get-togethers with friends and family.
Aspen Dental reminds patients to check their remaining dental insurance benefits before the benefits expire at the end of the year. Most insurance companies offer a certain amount of annual coverage that expires at the end of each year. To receive benefits for 2009 treatment, dental services must be performed before December 31. Ask your dental care provider how to get the most out of your 2009 and 2010 benefits as the New Year begins.
"This is a great time of year to schedule a dental visit," said Dr. Arwinder Judge, Vice President, Clinical Support for Aspen Dental Management, Inc. "People can visit their dentists before the holiday rush and begin the New Year on the path to excellent oral health. The importance of oral health is often overlooked, but it is a key to our overall health."
According to Oral Health America, sponsor of The Oral Healthcare Can't Wait™ campaign, it is imperative that patients realize the importance of a regular oral healthcare routine. Postponing regular dental checkups and recommended treatment will only result in more severe and more costly problems down the road. Although many patients are postponing dental treatment due to economic factors, the fact is that many Americans have dental benefits that they are not taking full advantage of. Aspen Dental can help ensure that patients are taking full advantage of their allotted coverage.
More than 215 Aspen Dental offices from Maine to Oregon and Washington work with all insurance plans to provide patients with a full range of denture and dental services, including hygiene, oral surgery, fillings, whitening and crown and bridge work. Aspen Dental offers free, no obligation denture consultations and is the only authorized provider of eight styles of full and partial hand-crafted ComfiDents® brand dentures.
Aspen Dental offers several programs to assist patients in getting the care they need including pre-payment plan discounts, extended payment plans, up to 24 months interest-free payment options, free new-patient exams and x-rays for new patients without insurance, and 10 percent senior discounts for patients over 65. Aspen Dental accepts cash, personal checks and all major credit cards.
