Dental Insurance - What To Know

To get the most out of your dental insurance, it is important to know your plan! Be sure to ask your insurance provider about plan limits, deductibles, percentages, recall cycles, and coverage percentages. We will pre-authorize your dental treatment, and the insurance company will send you the information. It is important to share this information with us, as there are laws that do not allow insurance companies to share your plan details with our office.  Remember that dental insurance is  designed to reduce your total payment but will not always cover the complete cost of treatment. Please allow us to help you best utilize your coverage by knowing your plan!

Feeling more stressed lately?

We’ve been noticing more and more people coming to us with broken teeth, sore jaws and headaches from clenching and grinding.  With everything happening in the world, it’s no wonder that we are all more stressed! We offer a variety of ways to help reduce tension in the head and neck, from guided exercises, muscle relaxants, night guards, to Botox. Below is an example of the effect Botox for your masseter muscles can have.  Our beautiful assistant Lena suffered from severe clenching. After treatment with Botox, her clenching greatly diminished and her jaw muscles were visibly reduced in size.  Ask us if Botox can be used to treat your jaw muscle pain!

Before: Botox for jaw pain
After: Botox for Jaw Pain

And she knows her wine, ask her for a recommendation

To mask or not to mask?! 

Mask wearing by patients and non-clinical staff is no longer mandated by the BC College of Dental Surgeons.  We recommend anyone who is more comfortable wearing a mask do so, and our clinical staff will all be wearing masks when they greet you and treat you!
