The basic policy I recommend for your dental office general policy manual regarding staff dental care is as follows:
Staff members are eligible for no-charge dental care after three months of employment.
We provide full time staff with free preventive and basic restorative care and home instructions as long as service is delivered during normal business hours when there is availability on the schedule.
The spouse and children of full time staff also receive dental care at no charge. All staff and family members’ dental appointments must also only be delivered during normal business hours when there is availability on the schedule.
“Complex cases" must be approved ahead of time. Costs will vary based on the case. The definition of complex is at the sole discretion of the practice owner(s).
Staff members receiving dental care must ensure they are not “on the clock” when receiving any kind of dental or hygiene care at our practice.
