Time is Running Out!

Use your 2018 dental benefits before they expire.

Hello, I’m Dr. Brandon Bice. For the past 3 years, I have been proud to be a member of the Grand Dental family, serving patients out of our Wilmington and Channahon locations. My colleagues and I are always concerned when our patients fail to use their remaining dental benefits before the end of the year. Don’t flush your benefits down the drain!

Most dental plans cover cleanings, routine check-ups and other preventative health services once every six months, or twice a year. Having multiple cleanings each year is the best way keep tartar from building on the enamel of the tooth. Tartar forms above and below the gum line and must be removed with special tools in the dentist office. Because tartar harbors bacteria, it can lead to cavities, tooth decay, gum disease and eventually tooth and bone loss. Ouch!

It is critical to keep up with regular dental appointments and be seen by your hygienist and dentist at least twice a year.

Benjamin Franklin said it best, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” In my experience, this is absolutely true about dentistry. Patients that maintain regular cleaning appointments, and have strong daily dental habits, save both time and money by avoiding serious dental emergencies. Therefore, it is imperative to use ALL your 2018 dental benefits before the end of the year.

You’ve paid for those benefits, don’t let them go to waste.

Don’t have a dentist? Don’t worry. With seven locations throughout the greater Chicagoland area, Grand Dental has appointments available before the end of the year. But Time is Ticking! Schedule an appointment with me or any of our amazing hygienists and doctors to ensure you get the extraordinary care you deserve.
