Although you may not realize it, your dental benefits have  a season.  More than 95% of dental plans are based on a calendar year.  If you don’t use what you are entitled to, they are gone as of December 31st.  Your benefits are NOT carried forward to the next year, so if you have been postponing dental treatment, now is the time to have the treatment.  Many treatments can take weeks to complete once the various options are sorted out.  That’s why its important to come in for a recare visit, to get things on the go as soon as possible, before your current year dental benefits expires.  Call the Yonge and Eglinton Dental clinic anytime if you need help understanding  your benefits.
