Dental care for employees

Does your office have a protocol for dental work needed by employees? Ours just recently adopted one (due to previous employees abusing the system, I have heard), so now the longer you have been there, the more discounted the procedures are. For instance, I need a couple fillings. Right now I think I have like a 50% discount or so, but after a year of working there, all my restorative will be free. Also, the dentist wants to only do this discounted work during “slow” times of the year. I feel bad leaving my decay to wait until the next slow time when I have been at this office longer, at least a few months… Curious about everyone else’s situations?

In our office employees are covered at 100% except for procedures that require lab work, in which case we pay lab fee only. If we have ins through our spouse it is billed and if it covers enough for any lab work then we pay 0. Our family gets 50% off all tx. If our family member has ins, we pay 50% of balance after it pays. There is no sliding % based on years of service.

In my experience unless you really feel like you will work a long time at this office and/or you really feel like the dentist is doing great work it is sometimes not great to do business where you work. It can lead to manipulations etc; this happens from both sides employee and dentist. however offices that i have seen the discounts in generally have these rules in order to avoid abuse. Another thing to remember treatment required should not be based on what funds/discount/DI is available it shpuld be based on clinical diagnosis.

Mags- the treatment plan was not made based on discount/insurance/etc, I just have not followed through with the tx plan since like I said they are trying to do treatment during slower times of the year.

100% free dental care with any lab fees included for immediate family. Extended family usually gets a discount of whatever the dentist decides. If covered on spouse dental plan the insurance will be billed and what insurance doesn’t cover is written off. If you go to a specialist you pay out of pocket unless the specialist trades out with their employees needing dental care. Usually we can schedule an appt on our day off or hole in schedule etc.
