Ask the Dentist With Dr. Clarke Woodruff: Dental Insurance…or Dental Benefit? (Sponsored)

Est. Read Time: 3 mins

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.

A former employee of a Hellertown dental office is facing felony charges after police say she committed forgery and obtained a controlled substance by fraud. In a news release issued last week, borough police said Elizabeth A. Weber, 25, of the 3400 block of Ringer Road, Whitehall Township, also impersonated the holder of a professional license–a misdemeanor–while employed at Hellertown Dental Group, 1213 Main St., Hellertown. Following an investigation, police said she was arrested on all three charges and arraigned at Northampton County District Court in Lower Saucon Township on Sept. 22. Weber was subsequently released on $10,000 unsecured bail, police added.
