Utilize Your Studentcare Dental Benefits at Inglewood Family Dental
At Inglewood Family Dental, we understand that it can be difficult and cost-prohibitive to get to the dentist when you are a full-time student. In fact, according to the Canadian Dental Association, approximately 2.26 million school days are lost every year due to dental visits or dental-sick days. As a University of Calgary alumnus, Dr. Arash Ravanbakhsh knows how important schooling is and wants to help all students of the University of Calgary ensure they are getting proper dental check-ups and treatment in order to prevent decay and other preventable problems before they become more severe. This can also help students save money in the long run by addressing these issues early on. Inglewood Family Dental is pleased to provide Studentcare Dental Benefits to both graduate and undergraduate students of the University of Calgary.
About the Studentcare Dental Network
The Studentcare Dental Network consists of dentists conveniently located throughout Canada that are committed to helping students receive quality, affordable dental care. Members of the Studentcare Dental Network receive 50% to 70% coverage for dental treatment based on the type and complexity of services required. For a full breakdown of coverage and dental benefits, you can refer to the Graduate Students’ Association (GSA) Dental Plan Coverage Chart. At Inglewood Family Dental, students will also receive an additional 20% to 30% off dental services, enabling plan members to have up to 80% to 100% of their dental costs covered by the GSA Dental Plan. Savings for eligible dental services at our practice are calculated based on the new 2022 Alberta Dental Fee Guide.
Studentcare Dental Benefits – 30% Off for Graduate Students and 20% off for Undergraduate Students
As part of the Studentcare Network, you are not limited to dental practitioners that are Studentcare Network members. However, by visiting a participating Studentcare Network member, you will also receive additional savings of 20-%30% off major restorative work, 20-%30% off basic services, and 20-%30% off preventative services at our practice.
At Inglewood Family Dental, we also adhere to the Alberta Dental Fee Guide, so our fees will not exceed the recommended amount proposed by the Government. This helps our patients avoid additional out-of-pocket expenses for their dental treatment. In some circumstances, if a clinic doesn’t follow the Dental Fee Guide, patients may still be responsible for any portion of treatment that is above the dental fee guide pricing. Following the dental fee guide allows our patients to understand clearly what they can expect when it comes to paying for dental treatment. It also helps makes dental care more affordable and predictable, and we are proud to participate.
We Also Offer Senior Discounts
Aside from our student discounts, we are also pleased to recognize and honor our senior patients by giving 10% off all dental services offered. There is no maximum dollar value to this discount. This is especially beneficial for patients under the Dental Assistance for Seniors program (https://www.albertadentalservicecorp.com/), which has a lower fee schedule (https://bit.ly/2VQcVq6f) than the Alberta Fee Guide. This can make a huge difference in out-of-pocket costs for Seniors looking to get work done.
