It specifies Dental Cleaning and Exam. Would it include X-rays or other dental work?

What's the catch? Do you have to pay a premium for the dental exam that isn't covered by insurance?

Yep I believe x-rays would be included in that

I took advantage of this last time. It was my first time going to the dentist I had booked, so I had to pay the new client assessment (which my insurance covered). A week later, I got the eGift Card. I ended up switching it for a physical gift card, which took another 2 weeks and $3 deducted. Overall though, it was an easy company to deal with.

I don't get why it's limited to new patients only.

Wouldn't they bolster their revenue base and business model by having repeat users?

Not very sound judgment on their part IMHO.

Probably hopes to scare people enough for more expensive procedures.

Wasn't it $250 past time? Looks like they are decreasing the bonus. Expressionless Face

Why is everyone hating?

Dentists are partnering with this company to get new clientele. That really says it all.

Also title is MISLEADING. Offer is NOT limited to the GTA but any dentist that is partnered with OpenCare

I saw the airpods as well and I actually prefer this one as I don't need them. I think the slightly lower value makes up for the fact that it's cash.

Rant:

I just think this whole Opencare thing is so grey area. Guess what people would say if a dentist, chiropractor, massage therapists etc. told you that they were going to charge the insurance company more and give you the difference? Fraud!
I don't believe the dentist is going to lose money here or make less than usual.

End of rant.

Or maybe I'm missing something here. Any thoughts?

Sorry OP, didn't mean to turn your post into a debate.

I don't think you guys know how this works. Open care is a headhunter for dentist basically finding new patients for the dentists.

I assume the dentist pays or subscribes to open care. You as a new patient go through open care, answer some questions and they find you dentists in your area. Based on my preferences they gave me 9 dentists to choose from. I picked one and they notify the dentist.

The dentist office texted me the next day to give me different times for my appointment and I picked what worked. I went to the appointment like I would any other dentist and they charge the same as any other patient. My insurance covered it all so I didn't pay anything. Still submitted the paid invoice back to open care and they gave me $250. This was the airpod promotion but they didn't have e airpods nor did I want them and knew you could ask for a giftcard anyways.

I got a virtual giftcard for $250 the next day. The dentist now has a recurring customer if I choose to stay with them and open care gets the fee the dentist pays.

No scam here

No worries! I think the way it works is that the offer is provided by Opencare, not the dentist. Yes, presumably dentists pay Opencare some sort of fee for every patient but when I went they didn't charge me any more than my old dentist. In Ontario I believe there is a fee schedule that they have to follow, so they can't really overcharge
