Use It or Lose It: Why You Should Visit the Dentist in Fairfax Before the End of the Year

Can you believe it’s almost the end of the year? Time certainly feels like it’s flown by this year! We know the holiday season is a busy time for everyone, so as we approach the end of the year there’s one more thing you need to add to your “to-do list” — make an appointment with one of our dentists in Fairfax! Here’s why:

  1. Your dental insurance benefits expire at the end of the calendar year. This means that any remaining benefits that you haven’t used yet this year will go to waste.

  2. Most insurance deductibles reset in the new year so if you’ve already hit your deductible this year, it’s a good time to complete treatments to maximize your deductible spend. For example, if you’ve put off getting that filling, crown, or dental implant you need, now is the time!

  3. If you've put some of your pre-tax dollars away in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA), it’s important to use them before you lose them.

  4. Your dental health is crucial to your overall health, so at this busy time of year, when eating more sweet treats than usual, it’s important to stay on top of your oral health by getting your (hopefully) second cleaning and exam of the year.

  5. Give yourself the gift of a stunning new smile by beginning the Invisalign teeth straightening treatment you’ve always dreamed about or having your teeth professionally whitened to give you a boost of confidence for the party season.

At our dental practice in the heart of Fairfax, our experienced and knowledgeable staff will be delighted to guide you through your treatment options, insurance benefits, and finance options for whatever treatment you are looking for.
