Saskatoon Dental Group is a locally owned, full-scale Saskatoon dental clinic offering general dentistry services. At Saskatoon Dental Group, we are dedicated to offering excellent care to our amazing patients who are like family to us. We are grateful to treat whole families in Saskatoon across multiple generations and have a multicultural team speaking multiple languages. Only 8 weeks until December 31st, have you reviewed your Employee Benefits and Year End?

At the end of each year, so many people advise that they meant to go to the dentist to have their teeth cleaned, but and then the excuses start. As we have a couple of weeks until the end of the year, we recommend the following:

Review your Employee Benefits and Year End

Employee benefits typically run from January 1 to December 31 and depending on your carrier you get a certain dollar amount you can use for dental each year.

In order to get your dental benefits paid for in the current year, the expense needs to be incurred in that year.

The amount of dental benefit is dependent on the carrier and what your employer sets up.

Your benefits do not carryover from one year to the next year, they are reset each year at the beginning of the year.

If you have dental work that needs to be done and it is going to be quite expensive, the recommended practise is to start the dental in the current year, use up what you have avaialable for benefits and then have the remaider of the work completed in the next year.

Book your appointment today and make sure confirm your employee benefits and year end. 

We encourage you to visit us once a year for a full checkup and examination. Oral health is closely tied to your overall health and wellness; we can often identify issues before they become problems.

We are always welcoming patients looking for a new dental family. If you would like to book a checkup or if you have any dental questions please do not hesitate to reach out to our team. We hope we fully explained why you shouldn’t skip your dental check-ups!

See you soon!
