09 Nov Invest in Your Smile
To have a healthy mouth and bright smile, it is best to see our Yuba City dentist twice a year for an exam and cleaning. Taking this simple measure to protect your teeth and gums saves you money, because our dental staff spots potential problems before they cause serious damage. Additionally, preventive dental care starts at home with brushing and flossing daily.
Even if you care for your teeth regularly, should you also budget for dental care needs? Yes! Setting aside money each month, or having a health savings account (HSA), allows you to plan for unexpected dental costs. And the advantage of an HSA (or its cousin the FSA — Flexible Spending Account) is that it reduces your income for tax purposes.
Know Your Plan
If you have a dental insurance plan, get to know it! Make sure you understand what it covers and what your out-of-pocket costs are for common procedures. The Yuba City Dentistry Group accepts many dental insurance plans and is happy to provide you with upfront estimates of your costs for routine care and procedures. We help you determine what the best course of treatment is based on your budget and these insurance estimates.
The end of the year is fast approaching, so use your remaining FSA or HSA funds, if you have them, for the 2017 year. Call and make an appointment today and let the Yuba City Dentistry Group take charge of your dental health!
