Since the new year is right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about dental insurance for 2021. At HomeTown Dental, we know that choosing the right benefits may seem complicated, but we’re here to give you some pointers on how to find the right coverage for you and your family. Here are a few things to consider when choosing the right dental plan:


Know What Your Dental Insurance Covers

Dental insurance plans are great to help you cover certain costs, but most dental insurances won’t cover everything. Most insurances will pay for preventative care and a majority of basic procedures. However, not all plans are the same. When you’re deciding on coverage, you have to make sure you’re aware of what you’re going to pay out-of-pocket and what will be covered by the insurance provider. 


Using Dental Coverage to Your Benefit

Having dental coverage is one thing, but using it is something entirely different. We find that many of our patients have dental insurance plans, and they don’t take advantage of it throughout the year. One of the main benefits of having coverage is allowing yourself to visit your dentist for preventative care– visiting your dentist every six months. Visiting your dentist every six months ensures that problems can be caught before they become serious issues and makes sure you aren’t wasting your money on coverage. 


The HTD Financial Discount Plan

No matter what you choose to do for 2021, our team will have you covered. We offer all of our uninsured patients with discounts through our HomeTown Dental Plan. With or without coverage, we want to make sure that everyone has access to affordable, high-quality dental care. That way, you can always put your best smile forward.
