Comprehensive means we keep the optimal function of total oral health in mind when determining treatment. Conservative treatment retains as much natural dentition as possible, and preventive dentistry looks to stop oral health concerns before they start. One of the biggest contributors to preventive care happens outside our dental practice. Our team cleans and examines your teeth two days a year, but the remaining 363 days are all up to you. That’s why we offer guidance to maximize the benefits of your at-home care routine. Possibly the most essential aspect of oral hygiene is tooth brushing.

There’s a band concert tomorrow, a basketball game on Friday and doesn’t it seem like there’s a big math or English test every single day? We have tons of responsibilities in parenting, and in the midst of it all, other things can slip by. For example, your child’s teeth — when was the last time he or she visited the dentist? And are you sure they’re getting brushed (and flossed!) properly, two times a day? These may seem like minor details in the midst of everything else going on, but your Waco dentist is here to remind you that your child’s oral health should be one of your top priorities.

Use Your 2014 Dental Insurance Benefits Before Time Runs Out

December 10, 2014

178150902Have you been to the dentist this year? If you haven’t, your dental insurance benefits may expire on December 31st. By making an appointment to see Dr. Cofer at Premier Family Dental today you can ensure that your 2014 dental insurance benefits aren’t wasted.  Dr. Cofer and his talented team are ready to help you get the dental treatments you need to stay healthy year round. Premier Family Dental proudly serves families daily throughout Waco, TX, Robinson, Lorena, and the surrounding communities.

Why Should You Use Your 2014 Dental Insurance Benefits?

There are several good reasons to use your dental insurance benefits before they expire at the end of the year. First, many dental insurance plans have yearly maximums. These maximums vary, but if not used within the calendar year, they will not roll over. Allowing these benefits to expire will only make the dental procedures you may need next year more expensive. Additionally, if you take the time to invest in preventive dental care this year, it will probably help you avoid restorative care costs in the future. Another reason to use your dental insurance benefits is your monthly plan premiums. Why pay for our-services and not use them? Even if your teeth are generally healthy, you still need regular dental checkups and cleanings to keep them that way. However, the most important reason to use your dental benefits is to protect your health. Dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease only get worse over time. This means that the fees for the our-services you need will only increase the longer you postpone treatment. Be smart. Visit Dr. Cofer this year to save your naturally healthy teeth, and your budget.
