Crunch The Numbers
If you’re already paying for dental coverage or putting money into dental savings, figure out exactly how much you’re spending. If you’re exploring coverage for the first time, evaluate your finances so you know what you can afford.
On the other side of things, take a good look at the kind of dental expenses you may incur over the next few years. If you’re already losing teeth, experiencing pain, or need other serious dental care, it may be best to look for more extensive, comprehensive coverage. If you have children, you’ll likely want insurance that covers the costs of preventative care.
