June is bustling, filled to the brim with some of our favorite holidays: National Smile Month, Summer Solstice and Father's Day. Our favorite celebration this month is probably a day you've never heard of – June 28th is National Insurance Awareness Day.

You might not be as excited as we are, but before you hit the back button on your browser, double check to make sure you're not missing out on the benefits of dental coverage:

Why you should literally put your money where your mouth is:

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Most people don't think about their insurance until it is time to use it, but Delta Dental wants you to use your benefits.

Most dental problems and diseases are nearly 100% preventable. Regular check-ups allow your dentist to check for early signs of more serious problems. Finally, it's important to remember that at-home oral hygiene habits are just as important as regular check-ups.

Anything can happen.

While it's true dental insurance focuses on preventive services, emergencies can happen. You never know when a chipped tooth or will strike. There are many types of dental plans to fit you, your lifestyle and your budget. Shop around for a plan that's perfect for you.

A penny saved is a penny earned.

Most dental plans encourage preventive care by covering 100% of the costs of initial exams, cleaning, X-rays, and sealants. By regularly keeping preventative appointments with your dentist, you might save yourself future dental issues and expensive bills.

Pat yourself on the back – you're officially dental insurance aware!
