June is filled with some of our favorite holidays like National Smile Month and Father’s Day. But our favorite celebration is probably one you’ve never heard of. June 28 is National Insurance Awareness Day.
Excited yet? Before you hit the back button on your browser, take a few minutes to become informed about insurance and learn why you should put your money where your mouth is:
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Some types of insurance — like car insurance or life insurance — focus on the worst-case scenario. It’s hard to imagine your auto insurance covering routine maintenance, such as an oil change. But dental plans focus on preventive care to help you avoid more costly and painful problems in the future. In addition, regular check-ups allow your dentist to look for early signs of more serious problems.
Anything can happen.
It’s true that dental insurance focuses on preventive services, but emergencies can happen. You never know when a chipped tooth or broken jaw will strike. There are many types of individual 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, and X-rays, as well as sealants and fluoride treatments for children.
