So I have a regular dentist but if I saw one of their guys just once (to get the deal) would my other dentist know? I don't want to piss em off we've got a decent relationship and they take care of all my insurance needs

Dentists in Calgary are too busy ripping off everyone left and right to give away AirPods.

That’s exactly why I downvoted it!

The title said mentioned the deal without ON only, so when I clicked the link OP provided, it said it wasn’t available in my province, and therefore I was unable to get the deal. 🤷🏻‍♂️

How much does your average cleaning cost, without insurance?

It's a referral program for dentists, if they get a new patient though it they pay opencare and opencare gives you the "reward". I asked a dentist friend before and that was the gist of it.

In any case dentists pay opencare more than the cost of the reward so if you get $250, they probably pay $500. Also reviews show they can be pretty flaky with the rewards:

DV probably came before OP edited the title to Toronto only.

I get my cleaning done by the same hygienist for years now. But I've been skipping out on the 'Full check-up and Xray' because it cost way too much. The total cost of that and cleaning is around $450 and I have no insurance. If I could get the $250 gift card it would help tons.

That being said, could I use Opencare to apply to my current Dentist just for the GC? haha

They won’t know.... but since the dentist is paying open care, they are likely going to try and recover that money and more from you/your insurance (you won’t be leaving there with a small bill). If you use up your insurance for the year, it won’t be available to use at your regular dentist.

That’s not how it works. If you were normally paying 450 and instead went to a dentist in their referral network, you would be paying more than that.

Look there’s just no such thing as free. The cost has to be recovered somehow. For some people with tons of insurance it isn’t a problem. What do they care if insurance pays out 1500 for the work that was done from the appointment. They get the free stuff. Just realize that the cost is built in there somewhere.

This deal seems very shakey.

I just booked a cleaning appointment, and have fairly good insurance coverage.

From what I've been reading here, it seems that they are going to overcharge the heck out of me. Not sure how much higher and whether it will be covered by insurance, but I will report back if I do end up going.

Also, I dont want the airpods.
But I wont complain if I dont get $250.

My insurance covers 90% for dental. Does anyone know of a Dentist available through OpenCare which will not charge you the 10% (probably by billing 110% so 90% will cover all cost)?

"The Ontario Dental Association publishes a suggested fee guide for Ontario dentists. Dentists must tell patients if they intend to charge fees that are above the fees listed in the guide."

https://www.rcdso.org/en-ca/patients-ge ... ients/fees

Prices are regulated. They all charge the same no matter where you go, and must disclose if they charge fees above these prices. The only difference in price will be if you're getting just a cleaning vs. a cleaning, check up, x-ray etc.

They are basing the reward off lifetime value. I.e. through this promotion, they are hoping to obtain long-term customers, not just customers who go once and then go back to their regular dentist. That is why they can provide such a high incentive.

Hopefully there's enough of a rush that the Airpods sell out fast... I want the Visa gift card, not those trashy douche-magnets.

Screw insurance companies, they won't hesitate to do whatever it takes to deny a claim. So why should I do any different?
