A Flexible Savings Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) are pre-tax benefit accounts that are used to pay qualified medical expenses not covered by your health insurance. The money you put into FSA and HSA healthcare are not taxable so you save on taxes and keep more in your paycheck. If you have an FSA and your employer allows, you may be able to carry over $550 but no more, to the new year. Make sure you use your money before you lose it. 2020 is coming to an end, so contact us to schedule an appointment. An HSA has no limit to how much money you can carryover for the coming year. Non cosmetic dental expenses are included in both of these health benefits accounts.

If you or your child is in need of a mouth guard, contact Jaffe Dental Group to make an appointment.
Even though we are currently living in an extremely uncertain time, what can be certain is that you still should visit your dentist. After stopping non-urgent visits due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ADA (American Dental Association) along with the CDC officially recommend that dental teams open and serve patients, as long as all guidelines are followed.
We know you can’t wear a mask during your exam, but it is important that you wear it upon arrival to our office, monitor your own symptoms, let us know ahead of time if you may have been exposed to COVID-19 so we can reschedule your visit, and follow all social distancing and mask wearing measures outside of your visit. This limits your exposure to COVID-19, keeping you and our dental team safe.
In turn, our team has added extra safety precautions to make sure you and our team is safe. We are utilizing HEPA Filters with Ionizers, in order to reduce any sort of impurities during your visit. Moreover, we have gone above and beyond the recommended protocols to further reduce the risk of infection for you and our staff.

While it may get overlooked, oral health is just as important and intertwines with your physical and mental health. Your mouth is the first step in the digestive system. Without a healthy mouth, you will most likely see negative impacts on your overall health.
The health of one’s teeth and mouth are vital for your wellbeing. Good oral health allows for one to smile, speak, show emotion, smell, taste, and more. Without a good oral hygiene routine, one may feel insecure about smiling and refuse to show any emotion that involves expression of the mouth. This is damaging to one’s self-esteem and self-image, making oral health incredibly important for one’s own mental health.
If oral health is neglected, there may be other medical repercussions. Poor oral health can result in periodontal diseases, tooth decay, dry mouth, and other painful consequences. Poor oral health can also impact other parts of your body. Long term issues with oral health and care can lead to heart disease and other chronic illnesses. This is due to the build-up of bacteria that can get into the bloodstream and travel to your heart or other parts of the body, increasing the chance of infection.
It is extremely vital to maintain good oral health, as it is directly tied to your overall health. With good oral health comes good general health, so it is imperative that you mind your own oral hygiene and habits and see us regularly.
