Dental Insurance Benefits: Use it or Lose it! | Dr Sheetal Sachdeva B.D.S. (Dental Surgeon)

A few more months and the year comes to an end, most of the patients will waste hundreds of dollars due to unused dental insurance provided by their insurance provider.

During these last months of the year, people are too busy, and before they figure it out, it is already ended, and they will forget the visit their dentist.

It is better to take note before it’s too late to get the benefit and use the remaining balance of your dental insurance benefits.

Reasons To Use Your Dental Benefits Now!

Yearly Maximum

Dental insurance plans have an annual maximum they are willing to pay within a calendar year. If you need any restorative treatments, it makes sense to take advantage of these unused benefits since they don’t roll over into the following year.


The deductible is the amount of out-of-pocket expenses you pay your dentist before your insurance company pays for any services. As soon as 2022 arrives, your plan requires you to meet that deductible all over again.


Through your insurance provider, you’re currently paying dental insurance premiums every month; therefore, you should be using your benefits. You should have regular dental cleanings and check-ups looking for early signs of gum disease, cavities, gum recession and even oral cancer.

Fee Increases

Another reason to use your dental benefits before the year ends is possible fee increases. Most of these fees increases occur at the beginning of the year.

Dental Problems Can Worsen

By delaying your dental treatment, you are risking more extensive and costly treatment. What may be just a simple cavity now could turn into a root canal problem later and maybe even lead to tooth loss.

Request an appointment today or call us to schedule and use those benefits. Do not wait until late December to reserve an appointment with your trusted Wantirna South family dentist, Dr Sheetal Sachdeva.

Take care of your teeth with concern at the earliest, and they will thank you for it in the long run.

Call us, and we can work with your insurance provider to see what you still have available for benefits this year. You can reach our office at (03) 9800 2338.

Don’t Lose Your Dental Insurance Benefits!

If you have dental insurance, take a year-end check of your plan and see if you can set it to work for you. It really is a “use it or lose it” proposition. Don’t lose it.
