It may only be February now, but summer will be here before we know it. June is bustling, filled to the brim with some of our favorite holidays: National Smile Month, Men’s Health Month, Employee Wellness Month, and Father’s Day. Our favorite celebration in June is probably a day you’ve never heard of – National Insurance Awareness Day is June 28th.
Excited yet? Before you hit the back button on your browser, take a few minutes to become informed about insurance any month of the year. Even February.
Why you should literally put your money where your mouth is:
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Most types of policies, like health insurance or car insurance, focus on the worst-case scenario. It’s hard to imagine your auto insurance covering routine maintenance, such as an oil change.
Contrarily, dental plans focus on preventive care. Here’s why: most dental problems and diseases are nearly 100% preventable. Regular check-ups allow your dentist to check for early signs of more serious problems. Finally, it’s important to remember that at-home oral hygiene habits are just as important as regular check-ups.
Anything can happen.
While it’s true dental insurance focuses on preventive services, emergencies can happen. You never know when a chipped tooth or broken jaw will strike. There are many types of dental plans to fit you, your lifestyle and your budget. Shop around for a plan that’s perfect for you.
A penny saved is a penny earned.
Would you rather pay $125 for a dental cleaning or $0? We’re fairly confident we can guess your answer. Most dental plans encourage preventive care by covering 100% of the costs of initial exams, cleaning, X-rays, sealants and fluoride treatments.
Pat yourself on the back – you’re officially dental insurance aware!
