Update From Northwood Dental
All of us at Northwood Dental wish everyone the best of health and safety in these challenging times.
As part of the Governor's mandate and the recent Pinellas County 'safer at home' initiative, our current hours of operation have been adjusted and many of you may have already been contacted to postpone your dental services.
Other patient services are still being provided in an altered schedule designed for the safety of you, our patients, and for the safety of our Northwood Dental personnel.
We remain ready to care for your dental concerns and are making attempts to send out personalized communications regarding all present and future appointments.
If you need to speak with us in the meantime, please call/text 727-797-5161 (it is vital you leave a voicemail if we are unable to take the call) or send an email to: OfficeManager@northwood-dental.com. Our patients are our top priority and we are doing our best to respond ASAP.
We thank you for your patience and understanding.

End Of Year Dental Insurance Benefits
Hold on, don’t let your end-of-year benefits go to waste!
Did you know you might have money left on the table for dental care? It’s true! There are a couple of places where you might:
Your annual benefits from dental insurance coverage. Since your deductible and benefit max resets at the end of the year, there’s no better time to get dental care if you’re near your deductible, or already hit it.
Leftover dollars in your Flexible Spending Account (FSA). An FSA lets you set aside dollars pre-tax for healthcare-related expenses. Unfortunately, these contributions expire at the end of the year.
What you might not know is that you can use FSA dollars to cover any dental treatment that treats or prevents a dental disease. This includes:-- Teeth cleaning
-- Fillings and sealants
-- Tooth extraction
-- Inlays and onlays
-- All diagnostic and preventative services
-- Treatments for gingivitis, temporomandibular joint syndrome and disorder, gum recession, and oral surgery.
If you’ve been putting off dental treatment, or just need to get your teeth cleaned in time for the holidays (whitening is unfortunately not an eligible expense), and you have leftover funds in your FSA or hit your deductible - now’s the time to get it done!
