December 31st is fast approaching…

Many insurance providers reset patient benefits on January 1st making December 31st the final day to utilize your 2010 remaining benefits. If you don’t use these then they will be lost forever (Sorry no roll over benefits). Plan ahead and request an appointment before that time to finish any delayed or missed treatments and cleanings.

Q: What does “good oral hygiene” really mean?

A: The phrase “good oral hygiene” refers to the three things you should do to take care of your teeth: 1) brush and floss daily; 2) eat a well-balanced diet; and 3) visit the dentist on a regular basis. These dental hygiene basics shouldn’t be taken lightly; together, they help prevent dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease and can keep your breath fresh not foul. Plus, practicing good oral hygiene can not only save your teeth — it can save you money too.

Message from Dr. Rosales…

One of my main goals as a dentist, is to always bring the highest quality of dental education to my patients. I’m happy to not only present important information to you at your appointment but also on our website and monthly newsletters. With everything that is going on in our world today, I know that YOU are concerned with that “extra” cost. By keeping a good oral hygiene you can help relieve most of that cost down the road.

I also want to remind you that most, not all, insurance benefits “reset” at the end of the year. In other words, if you have any remaining benefits from your insurance plan you will no longer be able to utilize them after December 31st. Take this time and call us, or make an appointment sooner than later, to go over your remaining benefits and to finish any planned treatments.
