Bondi Dental – Dental Insurance: Use It or Lose It!
Using your dental insurance benefits before they expire at the end of the year can save you money and improve your oral health. Pay attention to your plan’s details and utilise your benefits for preventive care, addressing dental problems, maximizing coverage, and reducing out-of-pocket expenses. Don’t let your benefits go to waste; make the most of your dental insurance before the year ends.
To help you understand the importance of using all your benefits before the annual deadline, Bondi Dental would like to share five reasons you should make a dental appointment now and get into our offices before the New Year!
5 Great Reasons to Use Your Dental Insurance Prior to its Expiry
1. Use your annual maximum
The annual maximum is the highest dollar number that the dental insurance plan will cover for your dental work during the course of a year.
This amount varies by insurance company and plan.
If you have benefits that you don’t use, these benefits do not roll over. This means you should utilise all of the benefits available in a given year.
You pay your dental insurance premiums regularly, so you should take advantage of your benefits.
Even if you don’t need a particular dental treatment, it is always a great idea to schedule regular dental cleanings to assist in the prevention and detection of any early signs of gum disease, cavities, oral cancer, or any other dental problems.
3. Price inflation
Another reason to use your benefits now is the risk of fee increases.
At Bondi Dental, we do everything we can to keep our excellent and cutting-edge treatments economical, but we are at the mercy of increased costs of living, materials, and equipment, which may affect our rates.
Even during the middle of a year, it is always better to get your treatment immediately, as this will often mean it is more economical.
4. Dental problems get worse
When you delay dental treatment, you risk more extensive and expensive treatment later on.
Today’s simple cavity can become a root canal problem later. Usually, when dental issues are untreated and allowed to develop, they become much worse.
This is another reason to call Bondi Dental and schedule an appointment to use all your benefits.
5. It’s the holiday gift you can give yourself!
The end of the year is a time of celebration and social gathering.
Take advantage of your unused benefits to provide yourself with a stunning smile for the end of this year and going forward to the next one!
What might be covered?
Coverage varies depending on the dental insurance plan. Here are the services dental plans typically cover:
- Oral Examinations
- Tooth Cleanings
- Fluoride Application
- Sealants (Usually Limited to Children)
- Fillings either Amalgam/Silver or Composite/White
- Root Canal Treatments
- Treatments for Gum Disease
- Emergency Relief for Pain
Of course, every dental insurance plan is different. We recommend you contact your service provider and ask the right questions based on the information we provided above. (“What is my yearly deductible? What is the maximum amount you’ll provide for dental treatment? Which services are covered?”)
Once you’ve figured out the details, schedule an appointment, and our friendly staff at Bondi Dental hopes to see you before the New Year begins!

Dental Insurance: Don’t Miss Out on Your Benefits!
If you’ve been putting off your dental cleaning and check-up, it’s time to take action, especially if you’re a health fund member.
Most dental insurance providers offer no-cost cleanings once or twice a year but remember, your benefits don’t carry over to the next year. This means you’ll lose out if you don’t make use of them.
Book your appointment before the end of December to make the most of your insurance benefits and ensure your smile stays healthy throughout the year.
