(KUTV) Salt Lake City - As a company Apex Dental loves giving back to their community and patients, this past weekend they got to meet up with Gaten Matarazzo, star of Stranger Things, and donated $5,000 of free dentistry to a local charity that he supports. Apex Dental also just finished our 6th annual Patient Appreciation Giveaway. In the past we have given away a new car, vacations, and more. This year we are paying the bills for one of our lucky patients for a year. Today on Fresh Living Joe Maio, DDS, joined the hosts to share some tips for maximizing end of year benefits at the dentist to make sure you are getting the care you need.
With just a little over three months left in the year, it’s hard to believe how fast the end of the year is approaching. This is a great opportunity to take a moment and make sure you are getting the most use out of the dental benefits you have been paying for all year. Every year we have patients who forget to utilize the full extent of their benefits, and unfortunately they typically expire at the end of every year. Preventative check-ups and cleanings are an easy way to stay on top of your dental hygiene, and if they are covered under your insurance plan, there is no reason for you and your family not to take advantage of them. Many of our patients also participate in Flex Spending accounts through their employers. Flex spending accounts are funds that are set aside pre-tax to be used for any medical or dental expenses occurred throughout the year. These accounts are a great way to save on your planned dental treatments, from cleanings to dental implants. Similar to dental insurance benefits, flex spending accounts are typically use-it-or-lose-it investments, so make sure you are taking full advantage of the money you have set aside. Even if you are up-to-date on your yearly exams, the end of the year is also a great time to create a game plan for your dental expenses in the coming year. Through a free evaluation, the Apex team can help you create a personalized treatment plan that meets both your dental needs as well as your budget. For those people without insurance or Flex spending accounts, Apex partners with the discount savings plan Velicus, to allows our patients access to award winning dentistry at affordable prices. Velicus provides members two free cleanings, x-rays, and exams a year, as well as a 25% discount on all other dental procedures. Unlike dental insurance, there are no maximum coverage amounts and no waiting periods. Velicus works directly with individuals as well as small businesses to provide their members access to quality dental care. So if you don’t have insurance, or you aren’t happy with your plan, call an Apex office today to learn more about the available options.
