Workers’ Comp Payments in Sacramento Elk Grove, CA

Any injury you get while working on the job is covered by workers’ comp. This includes injuries to the mouth. While job-related mouth injury is not all that common, it does happen. Some industries are more likely to have people experience mouth trauma than others, such as construction, mechanics, cleaning, food service, healthcare and agriculture.

Finding a dentist who accepts workers’ comp payments can be slightly problematic because these claims are so rare; however, we do accept them at Ora Dentistry. There are particular protocols which must be followed to ensure the claim goes through properly. We understand those requirements and work with our workers’ comp patients to help them file their claim correctly and promptly.

It is important to understand that workers’ compensation will only cover the dental care associated with the trauma due to the injury incurred at work. It will not cover other dental work. With that being said, it is very important to address any oral trauma as soon as possible. Delaying dental treatment, particularly in the case of mouth trauma, can result in the escalation of damage.

In addition to the impact delayed treatment may have on your oral health, workers’ comp claims need to be properly filed within a certain time frame. In order to receive the benefits and have your claim paid, you must file before time runs out.

Was Your Mouth Injured on the Job?

Filing the workers’ comp claim properly and quickly is important, but even more important is treating the mouth trauma and getting the patient feeling better as soon as possible. We are committed to providing excellent, compassionate care to all of our patients, especially to those who have mouth trauma.

The pain and discomfort associated with any injury to the oral cavity can be debilitating. Getting the damage treated and putting the patient on the road to recovery as soon as possible is crucial, particularly in the case of a work-related injury.

Your teeth perform three basic functions. They help you eat properly, speak clearly and they provide structure for your facial muscles. When you lose a tooth or teeth, these functions can be drastically impaired. Workers’ comp provides coverage to get your mouth functioning again as it relates to the injury.

Any teeth that were loosened, knocked out or damaged because of a work-related injury are covered under workers’ comp. Due to the nature of these types of mouth injuries, it is important that you be seen as soon as possible so the proper treatment can begin quickly.

At Ora Dentistry, we have the expertise to make sure your workers’ comp claim is filed properly and promptly. The trauma to your mouth will be addressed with care and compassion. Scheduling your appointment is the first step in your recovery process.

A thorough exam of the trauma will reveal the extent of your injuries and dictate the best treatment plan. Depending on the damage to your teeth, you may need crowns for broken, cracked or chipped teeth.

A tooth that’s been knocked out and cannot be salvaged will need to be replaced. A dental implant may be the best option for replacement. This requires an additional examination of the bone and surrounding tissues to ensure that an implant will be successful.

Trauma to the mouth can be very distressing. Choosing a dental team with expertise, compassion and a commitment to patient care is important at such times. We invite you to contact Ora Dentistry for your dental care if you have work-related mouth trauma. Our commitment is to our patients’ best oral health and beautiful smiles.

Very confused by the website and advertising as an after hour/emergency dental service. I broke a tooth this evening and was looking for emergency dental services for the earliest appointment. I called and a receptionist/operator picked up on a Friday evening close to 8 p.m. and said that the emergency dental service was only for existing patients. That isn't on the website and in fact, the top line on the website states if you need emergency dental care , call. Don't mind that they aren't able to see me, but the operator needs a better script when explaining their services and should also provide better service or don't be an after hour receptionist. She also never asked me if I WAS an existing patient. Would love to give no stars, but I can't post unless I pick one. UPDATE: So wasn't expecting the owner of the practice to call me. I spoke with Dr. Dalla and he explained in detail their policies and calmed my anxiety regarding my broken tooth.. I appreciate that he is a business owner that pays attention to what is being said about his practice and would take the time to follow up. I may have found a new dentist.

I’ve been searching for a dental office for my special needs daughter for a long time. I called many offices explaining her situation that she had Autism and anxiety and I was told they didn’t see special needs kids. I came across Ora Dentistry through my google search and gave them a call explained to them my situation and they told me they’d be happy to see her. We scheduled an appointment. On the day of the appointment I called again and explained her situation and told them she would like her sister and mom to be there for support due to her anxiety and they were totally accommodating and that put me at ease. We got to our appointment and were greeted by Bridgette she was AMAZING with my daughter she made her feel SUPER comfortable through out the entire process! I’ve never seen my daughter so calm and relaxed. When the doctor came in to do his exam on her he too was beyond nice and again made my daughter feel at ease. I really have to thank Ora dentistry for their excellent service! If you have a special needs child this is the place to go! Highly recommend it!

Two years ago I visited this office to assess the viability of getting an implant for a lost tooth. On that first visit Dr. Dalla had x-rays taken, made the assessment, provided me with options, including performing an implant on a lost back molar. I consented, and right then and there, he performed the actual implant and gave me a return appointment to insure all was healing well. Then, 3 months later, he fitted me with the abutment and took impressions for the crown. Two weeks after that the crown was installed. Not only was the work done in record time, but it has been the best fitting crown I've ever had, and I've had 18 crowns in my lifetime of 68 years. This was my second implant. My first implant was by another dental office and does not come close to compare with Dr. Dalla's work. His implant and crown feel like healthy, natural teeth, and in fact, I chew most of my food using that new "molar." I wish I would have gone to him long ago. By far the best around. He is a perfectionist, and is demanding of himself. Just what you should want in someone performing your dental work. Highest recommendations!
