It’s Time To Use ALL Your Dental Insurance Benefits [BLOG]

Dental insurance is a great way to get the dental care that you and your family need. With the end of the year fast approaching it’s time to make sure that you get the maximum value from your dental insurance. When the clock strikes midnight on January 1st, this year’s benefits are gone. Beaumont Family Dentistry in Lexington, KY will help you use your dental insurance to the full.

It’s Not ONLY About Cleanings And Exams

Since this is the holiday season, there’s no reason not to have your teeth looking their best for those parties and family get-togethers. If you or a family member has a dental cleaning and examination scheduled for early next year, consider moving it to December. In the case of children, a cleaning and exam now may save lost school days next term.


You or someone in your family may have a dental restoration that has become rough or chipped. Depending on your policy, repairing or replacing that restoration may well be a covered procedure. Early intervention with any dental problem is almost always more cost- and time-efficient than waiting until the problem is worse.


Speaking of restorations, this might be a good time to have those old amalgam (silver) fillings replaced with tooth-colored fillings that look much more natural. Again, this may or may not be a covered procedure unless the current filling has deteriorated. If you have any question about whether a procedure is covered, call our office in Lexington, KY at 859-223-2120 . We’ll be happy to advise you and to contact your insurance company if there’s any question. We are very much a patient-first dental practice, but you don’t have to take our word for it. Just ask Ginnie Rose.

“They did a great job of going through what my insurance would cover…”

Sometimes, a dental practice can exceed your expectation is many areas. That’s what Ginnie Rose discovered at her first appointment at Beaumont Family Dentistry.

“I hadn’t been to the dentist in a while,” she said, “and I was a little nervous that they would be upset or kind of make me feel bad about that. Everybody was really nice and just made me feel very reassured being here. They’ve talked about what they were going to do, how long it would take. I always knew the payment expectations right up front. They did a great job of going through what my insurance would cover and what I would be responsible for. Even the day or two before I was supposed to come in, they called just to make sure I didn’t have any questions or make sure that I knew everything that was going to happen.

“They even called to ask the next day how I was feeling. That was good, because then it gave me time after it was finished if I had any questions that I thought of, I could ask those then. I felt very informed. Because everyone’s been so friendly and it’s been such a great experience, they have made it so that I wanted to come back and go to the dentist. I have now started having yearly cleanings. It has been a great experience.”
