Need Help Understanding Dental Insurance?

For many patients, dental insurance is a benefit that they receive from their employer. Like health insurance, it's intended to ensure that patients receive the proper medical care that they require at more a more affordable cost. We couldn't agree more strongly with this purpose. But, given the many different plans and options that are available from providers, sometimes this can get VERY confusing.

If you have the time, take a look at your coverage and what you're entitled to. If you don't have time or can't make heads or tails of things, get some help from your dentist. They can help wade through all the details of your plan; from co-pays to deductibles and limitations.

By working with a dentist that takes the time to go through your insurance coverage BEFORE your visit has two three significant advantages.

1. It can save you time!
2. Patients can avoid costly surprises!
3. Patients can maximize their benefits!

What's all This Talk about Dental Sealants for Kids?

We all want to keep our children happy and healthy. This goes for their teeth as well.

As much as we can keep after them to brush and floss, there are many other things that can help to ensure that their teeth stay cavity-free. A easy procedure to consider is the use of Dental Sealants.

Dental Sealants are a protective layer that is applied to teeth. It acts as a barrier against decay. Much like a protective clear paint layer, it can't be seen but is there simply to protect teeth from the natural decay that occurs from sugary foods and spots that are missed from ordinary brushing.

The great news is that many dental insurance companies cover dental sealants up to a certain age. If you haven't heard or looked into Dental Sealants before, click here to read more about Dental Sealants.

Walk Across America - In 2 Minutes

A very creative video put together by a group of guys and sponsored by Levi's.

Only 2 minutes long, but the images and effect are amazing. The actual trip consisted of a director, producer, photographer, and actor that traveled via RV for two weeks. Stops included American landmarks like Washington, D.C., Chicago, Mt. Rushmore and Las Vegas.

Rather then shooting it with a movie projector, the team pieced together still photos taken on the actual, 14-day cross country trip, from New York to San Francisco — no green screens involved. When all was said and done, it took over 2,700 images to complete.

So if you don't have a chance to travel this summer, take a couple of minutes to check this out.
