Where does the time go? It seems as if 2017 was just getting started, and now we find ourselves getting ready for the holiday season, and preparing for the start of a new year. You may not be thinking about the dentist right now, but there are some good reasons why a visit to Cen-Tex Dental should be on the to-do list for you and your family.

First, the holidays are a time for family, friends and celebrations, and you do not want to spend that time worrying about a cavity or a toothache. By making an appointment to see us now, you can address any small problems before they become big ones, and enjoy your holidays with a trouble-free smile.

Second, as the year winds down, so do health care benefits, which include dental benefits. Now is the time to put your dental benefits to work before they expire. Your oral health is a key component of your overall health, and with that in mind, this is the perfect time to make sure that your teeth and mouth are ready for the new year, and that you have made the best use of your benefits.

You should keep in mind that coverage differs from company to company, and policy to policy. Before you decide on a dental procedure, you will need to be certain that it is covered under your policy. In some cases, your insurance may cover a similar procedure to the one you are seeking. Take some time to review your policy, as the deductibles, copayments, and out-of-pocket costs are your responsibility. Please notify us if your plan has changed, or if you have changed providers since your last visit.

Cen-Tex Dental accepts many insurance plans, including the following:

Children’s Healthcare Insurance Program (CHIP)
Children’s Medicaid and PPO
Delta Dental
Military Dental Plans (Tricare)
PPO Insurances
United Concordia
