Use your dental benefits before they expire Aug. 31

Dear Colleagues,

I hope this email finds you in excellent oral health.

As our fiscal year is quickly approaching its end on Aug. 31, I am writing to remind you that it is not too late to make the most of your remaining dental benefits before they expire. Many UT Health San Antonio employees have already discovered the personalized, private practice oral health care provided by the experts at UT Dentistry’s General Dentistry Clinic. All practitioners at this clinic are in-network preferred providers for UT System’s Delta Dental insurance, which makes finding the time and using your benefits for routine dental care more convenient.

The benefits of regular dental check-ups

Regular dental check-ups are vital for maintaining excellent oral health and preventing more severe dental issues down the line. Here are some key reasons why you should make the time to fully utilize your dental benefits:

  • Preventive care — Dental check-ups help identify oral health issues at an early stage, preventing them from developing into more complicated and costly problems.
  • Save money — By utilizing your dental benefits for regular check-ups, cleanings and preventive treatments, you can save money in the long run by avoiding expensive dental procedures that may be necessary due to neglect.
  • Overall health connection — Oral health is closely linked to overall health. Regular dental visits can help detect and manage conditions like diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers.
  • Preserve your smile — A healthy smile boosts confidence and positively impacts your overall quality of life. Regular dental care ensures your smile remains healthy.
