Workers’ Compensation Cases Elk Grove, CA

Workers’ Compensation Cases

When you are injured on the job, the law requires your employer to have workers’ compensation insurance to help cover those injuries. While dental problems from work-related accidents are less common than other types of injuries, they do occur. Unfortunately, finding a dentist that accepts workers’ compensation cases is not always easy. At Laguna West Dental Care, we want to ensure all our patients get the oral care they need, including those that have dental issues caused by a job injury.

Work-related injuries are usually covered under workers’ comp insurance and need special handling so they are processed correctly. This can be complicated, especially when it involves dental care. Most dentists accept insurance, but workers’ comp can be more complicated. Our team at Laguna West Dental Care works with our patients that have a workers’ comp claim. We will ensure the right forms and information are submitted to have dental care covered for legitimate dental workers’ comp claims.

Types of On-the-Job Dental Injuries

Most workers’ comp cases with dental care involve damage to the teeth or jaw. If a worker was involved in a car accident or other type of impact accident or received trauma to the face, jaw or teeth, repairs may be required. Some of the dental repairs that could be covered under workers’ comp insurance include:

  • Cracked or broken tooth repairs
  • Dental crowns, bonding or fillings
  • Dental restorations
  • Treatments for TMJ/TMD caused by jaw injuries

If you live in Sacramento, Elk Grove or the surrounding area and need an experienced dentist that handles workers’ comp cases, contact us at Laguna West Dental Care. We understand the complexities of these types of claims and can help you navigate the insurance process. Contact our office in Elk Grove today to schedule an exam. Be sure to let our staff know that you have an open workers’ compensation case that may cover your dental treatments.

Suzanne B.

As I was walking to my car after my appointment I thought, I sure am happy I come here. I get warm friendly service and gentle, thorough care throughout my visit. Dr. Chan and his staff are the best.

Jennifer B.

We've been so very happy with Dr. You and his staff since we moved to Sacramento in 1985! We've followed him to the current location in Laguna...he and his staff take such good care of all our dental needs. I have no hesitation in recommending their services!

Stephanie O.

In my 65 years on the planet, and hundreds of hours in former dentists' offices, Dr. You and his staff are by far the best I've ever encountered. My very recent crown replacement was 100 percent pain free! All phases of treatment, from removal of the old crown, mold taking and making, to the permanent placement with my brand new well-matched molar, was seamless. I respect and applaud Laguna West Dental Care for taking such talented care of me.

Janet S.

Since retiring, I drive and hour and a half each way to continue to see Dr. You and his entire staff ... and I hate to drive. No better dentist and hygenists in Sacramento and I have tried others over the years. Thank you for a great experience each and every time Laguna West!

Norman H.

In my 50+ years, I've probably had 7 to 8 dentists and have had my share of bad experiences that made me fearful of going to the dentist. But, after switching to Dr. Chan in 1991, I really couldn't be happier and don't dread dental appointments anymore. Dr. Chan is gentle and exceptionally good at giving shots that I can barely feel. He even calls me in the evening after every procedure to make sure I'm doing okay. The staff is friendly and caring and the facilities are nice. Highly recommended.

Carol D.

We've been patients of Dr. You and Dr. Chan since my son was in kindergarten - now a County employee. Everyone on the staff is great. I had one bad experience with a dentist referred by my insurance co. - I'd NEVER see a dentist again without a personal referral. Consider this mine to you -- Laguna West is an excellent choice!
