As the holidays quickly approach as the year draws to an end, you want to have a beautiful, healthy smile so nothing dampers the holiday festivities. Nothing is worse than having a toothache or unexpected dental complication ruin your holiday spirit. If it has been a while since the last time you saw your dentist in Encinitas, now is the perfect time to schedule an appointment. With the holidays approaching, Dr. McElroy will help you maximize the value of your dental insurance while providing you with a healthy, confident smile to shine brightly this holiday season.

Dental Care Before the Holidays

The holidays are a hectic time of year, which often causes many to put off going to the dentist. However, you need to make your oral health a priority. It is important to maintain your dental appointments, even when times get busy to prevent dental complications.

Regular appointments with your dentist help to stop the development of complications through dental checkups. In addition to performing preventive care, Dr. McElroy performs thorough evaluations to detect dental problems early. As a result, we are better able to reduce the severity of treatment needed by treating the complication while it is still small.

In addition to a comprehensive examination, Dr. McElroy also provides the professional cleanings you need to ensure your smile stays healthy and beautiful. Dr. McElroy provides the personalized care you need while we thoroughly clean the teeth to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. After a routine cleaning, you will smile brightly all through the holidays with a confident, beautiful smile.

With your oral health directly linked to your overall health, you will ensure you enjoy the holidays by protecting your health. With a regular dental cleaning and checkup, you will kick the holiday season off to a great start.

Your Dentist for Comprehensive Care

As the year comes to an end, now is the best time to schedule an appointment with your dentist. As the new year starts, your dental insurance policy will reinstate. However, with a few months left in the year, now is the ideal time to use your remaining insurance allowance before your policy reinstates.

At McElroy Smiles by Design, we strive to make dental care affordable and accessible. We will submit claims to your insurance for our out-of-network patients. By doing so, we will help you maximize the value of your dental insurance policy while saving you from high out-of-pocket-costs.

Dr. McElroy will provide you with the personalized care you deserve while enjoying our state-of-the-art dental practice. Using the most advanced dental technologies and procedures, Dr. McElroy will perform the necessary cleaning and checkup to ensure your smile remains as healthy as possible.

As the year comes to an end, do not let your dental coverage go unused. Enjoy a different kind of dental experience while using your insurance policy to protect your smile from damage.

If you are ready to benefit from a different type of dental experience, benefit from the best with Dr. McElroy. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
