In-between your Honey Do List and carting the kids to and from their summer activities you might have forgotten about your dental insurance – wait, say what about dental insurance?
That’s right, summer is the perfect time to get your dental coverage in check.
Use this checklist to take care of your dental insurance tasks:
1. Make Your Dentist Appointments
Summer break is an especially good time for children to visit the dentist since they won’t miss any school. At their summer appointment, it is a good idea to schedule another appointment for about 6 months down the road, which could give you time to coordinate their winter break with that visit.

2. Make qualifying coverage changes
Changes that affect your insurance can happen at any time, and these changes could qualify you to enroll in a new plan. Qualifying events include things like getting married, having or adopting a child, moving to a different county or state, and changes to your income.
3. Plan Before Open Enrollment
Most people have open enrollment at the end of the year, so now is a good time to evaluate what kind of changes you may face next year. Talk to your dentist about planning for major dental work like braces, dental implants and wisdom teeth removal. This will give you a chance to figure out what coverage changes you may need, and give you a head start on budgeting for dental work.
