September News and Notes
We hope you have all had a wonderful summer!
Dr. Deeg, Tracey and Krista were proud to represent Spring Creek Dental at the Minnesota Mission of Mercy held in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Saturday, September 9th. Nearly 1500 patients received FREE dental care regardless of previous dental history, insurance status or their ability to pay. If you would like to learn more about this wonderful annual event you can access the Minnesota Dental Association’s website at: https://www.mndental.org/events/mission-of-mercy/.
We look forward to participating next year!
As the end of the year approaches, we want to share a tip that can help you take full advantage of any dental insurance benefits you may have. According to the National Association of Dental Plans, only 2.8% of people with PPO dental plan participants reached or exceeded their plans annual maximum. Whether you’re paying for dental care through a benefits plan or using an FSA, your current plans will most likely run out on December 31. Unused benefits do not carry over to the next year. If you do not use those benefits you lose them!
Many people do not realize this and let hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars worth of benefits expire every year. Our goal with every one of our patients is to help you enjoy great oral health. We are happy to help you get the full benefits that you are entitled to under your dental benefits policy. Don’t let your hard-earned dental dollars go to waste…call us today so that we can find a time that is convenient for you.
FAQ: Pediatric Dentistry
The first day of classes for the Hudson school district is Monday, September 10th. With the start of school brings the start of school sports. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a mouthguard for all children and youth participating in the following organized sports: football, soccer, basketball, hockey, lacrosse, volleyball, wrestling, baseball and softball. Children between the ages of seven and ten have the highest number of injuries, accounting for over half. A properly fitting, custom-made athletic mouthguard remains the best way to prevent orofacial injuries and help reduce the incidence of severe concussions or sports-related Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (MTBI) in athletes. If you would like to have a mouthguard made for your child you can request an evaluation appointment on the contact page.
