Workers’ Comp Payments Elk Grove, CA

Any kind of serious injury can be devastating when it impacts your employment, not to mention your well-being. Usually, workers’ comp injuries on the job are associated with falls or injuries to the head or body. Injuries to the mouth while on the job are not as prevalent as other work-related injuries; however, when they occur they are still covered under workers’ compensation laws.

If you have been injured while on the job and your injuries include dental issues, it is important that you see a dentist right away for an exam. Finding a dentist in Elk Grove, Sacramento or the surrounding area who accepts workers’ compensation cases is important. There are certain protocols which must be followed for filing a workers’ comp claim.

Since dental claims are not that common when it comes to worker’s comp, accessing a dentist who is familiar with all the steps involved is vital to ensuring your claim is filed properly and efficiently. Fortunately, there are dentists who accept such claims and have the expertise to carry out the necessary requirements.

Was Your Mouth Injured on the Job?

Dental injuries on the job are not that common, however, they do happen. They are infrequent enough to cause some confusion when it comes to deciding if a workers’ comp claim needs to be filed and how to file one. This is why it is important to find a dentist who is familiar with the process.

Mouth injuries on the job can occur at any time. Some jobs are more likely to have these types of injuries than others. Statistics show that job-related injuries from the neck up often involve some type of dental trauma. These injuries can be the result of a vehicle accident, violence in the work environment, slips and falls, falling objects or accidents on construction sites or in manufacturing environments.

Regardless of where or how the injury took place, finding the right dentist to address the injury and help with filing the workers’ comp claim is critical. First and most important, the injury needs to be addressed. Pain and suffering need to be eliminated or at the very least, lessened as much as possible and as soon as possible. Early intervention often yields better results.

Waiting to address dental problems can result in more extensive dental work. For example, a tooth that was knocked out may be saved under the right circumstances; however, waiting to get to a dental office means loss of the tooth and replacement.

Call Now for Help with a Mouth Trauma, Cracked Teeth, and Dental Implants!

When your mouth has been traumatized in a work-related incident, make an emergency visit to the dentist as soon as possible. Not only is it important for your oral health, it is also important for filing workers’ comp claims. Dental injuries are best handled by dentists; hospital healthcare providers are not equipped or trained to address the intricacies of dental injuries.

If you have teeth that have been damaged due to trauma from a work-related accident or occurrence, get them examined and properly cared for immediately. You may need to have a missing tooth, or teeth, replaced with a dental implant. Cracked or broken teeth may require crowns. Early intervention is the most efficient path to the best outcome.

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!
