It’s almost the end of the year, and your flexible spending account dollars are on the verge of expiring. That’s tax-free money you could be wasting. This year has been especially hard on all of us and many people havent spent any of their Flex spending dollars so why not consider changing your life and boosting your confidence with a brand new smile  or that of a loved one.

At Dr Weber’s orthodontic practices in Wheaton IL, we get a lot of patients who ask if their flexible spending account accounts can go toward orthodontic care. The answer is, “Yes!” This money can go toward an adult or child starting new treatment or finishing existing treatment at our office.

Ways to put your flexible spending dollars to good use:

1) Give yourself a gift.

If you’ve been wanting to give yourself a better smile, now you can. By using your FSA dollars to give yourself Invisalign or braces, you’ll be well on your way to a more beautiful smile.

2) Do something nice for your spouse.

Wondering what to get your spouse for the holidays? Well, wonder no more. Giving them the rest of your FSA dollars to fix their smile is a great way to not only use up your remaining funds, but also do something nice for your main squeeze. It’s especially nice if you don’t have dental insurance.

3) Purchase extra retainers and mouthguards.

It’s inevitable that you or your children will lose their retainers or mouthguards. Buy an extra one to make sure you’re never without it.

4) Start another child in treatment.

Now is a great time to get another child started in treatment, too! Just bring them in for a free consultation, and then determine next steps.

These are just some of the ways you can put your FSA to use with orthodontic treatment in the Wheaton area. Just make sure to use your funds soon because once 2021 hits, that money will be gone for good.
