Editor’s Note: “Ask the Dentist With Dr. Clarke Woodruff” is a new monthly column about dental health and information writtten by S. Clarke Woodruff, D.M.D., whose practice is located at 800 Main St., Hellertown, Pa. This is the first in a two-part series about understanding dental benefits. In this fourth and final quarter of the calendar year, many employees have the opportunity to customize their benefits package with their employer. Patients often ask for advice in the selection of these benefits, so a short review of dental benefits is appropriate. Note that I did not say dental insurance.
