If the pandemic caused many of your routine health check-ups to be cancelled, and now you may be on a dentist search in Ontario, the great news is that now there are new ways in which you can finance your dental appointments. For an incredible amount of people, returning to the new ‘normal’ is difficult because the pandemic put a strain on your wallet. Seeing your dentist or other health provider is incredibly appointment as a routine check-up can prevent a more serious illness. It is important to remember that your oral health is a major part of your overall health.
One of the ways in which it may be easier for low-income seniors to go to the dentist is now due to the Ontario Seniors Dental Care Program along with the Seniors Co-Payment program which gives over 65’s access to receive free routine dental care and a reduced payment on prescriptions. This initiative is available from August 1st so it’s important to sign up right away as it is already estimated over 7,000 more people will get access to dental care and over 17,000 people would get access to lower-cost prescriptions on the new year. Not only is this fantastic for seniors who can get dental care after a long break, but it is also good news for dental clinics who can now care for new patients especially as the pandemic caused many clinics to shut due to revenue loss or the pressure form closures and restrictions.
Another way some people may find it easier to fund their next dental visit is by using cryptocurrency as payment in selected clinics. This is one of the newest way’s clinics give their clients more options to pay for their treatments which also provides patients with autonomy and lower transaction costs. This modern way of paying for treatment may be incredibly beneficial for some who would like to keep their cash in the bank and instead pay with the newest currency. The pandemic has been difficult for many people and your dental care should not have to suffer in the process, as mentioned before, it is incredibly important to visit your dentist during this period of reopening to avoid any complications or future illnesses that can arise from poor oral hygiene.

Now services are reopening with greater caution, more safety measures to be Covid free and also helping customers finance their appointments so that any hidden ailments can be found and treated to avoid a trip to the emergency room.
