The Basics Of Dental Insurance
Dental Insurance is fundamentally different than medical insurance. This is based on the difference between the two approaches to your health care. Medical care is mostly reactionary to a health problem. For example, when your son complains of an earache, you may take him to the pediatrician. The doctor discovers an infection and prescribes an antibiotic. Try as you might to prevent infection—good nutrition, proper sleep—there’s really no way to avoid these childhood illnesses.
Dentistry, on the other hand, is designed to prevent oral health problems before they develop. That’s why the entire team at Monarch Smiles encourages patients to schedule twice yearly dental checkups. With this regularity, we can spot the early warning signs of problems—tooth decay and gum disease, for example—and treat accordingly.
Your dental insurance is designed to encourage regular visits to the dentist, because your benefits run out at the end of the calendar year.
So, if you have dental insurance, schedule your appointment today at Monarch Smiles.
