frequently asked questions

Q: Are Simpli Dental’s prices for dental treatment in Saskatoon and Regina actually low?

A: Typically, prices for dental services are set based on the College of Dental Surgeons of Saskatchewan’s Fee Guide. Simpli Dental’s fees range from 10-50% less than those in the fee guide.

Q: With lower prices, does that mean lower quality?

A: No, our materials and techniques are the same as those traditionally used by our dentists in other clinics that do not follow the low-cost model.

Q: Do you direct bill my insurance?

A: If we have your insurance information on file and your provider accepts electronic submissions, we can send your claim to the insurance provider from our office. In an effort to keep our prices as low as possible, we ask that payment be made at the time of service and the insurance company reimburse you. Coordinating delayed payment results in the need for increased staff and higher costs. However, we are testing an assignment of benefits (direct billing) process at our Saskatoon clinic. At this time, patients that wish to have their treatment “directly billed” to their insurance provider are able to do so. Please note that for these treatments, due to the added administrative expense, we will be charging the current College of Dental Surgeons of Saskatchewan suggested fee guide.

Q: Do you offer financing?

A: Yes, we work with Dentalcard a third-party financing provider to make sure you are able to afford the dental treatment you need. To apply click here.

Q: How do I book a dental appointment in Saskatoon or Regina?

A: You can book an initial appointment online or by emailing our office. You can then book follow-up appointments at our clinic or online. It won’t be as quick as booking online, but you can also phone our office and leave us a voicemail or text us and we will get back to you.

Q: Why doesn’t Simpli Dental answer my phone calls?

A: We’re a pain in the mouth, we get it, but it all helps our patients save money. We rely on software and don’t have a receptionist tending the phones at all times to help deliver the lowest price possible. If you leave us a voicemail, send a text to our office number or email to reception@simpli.dental, we will be sure to get back to you as soon as possible.

Q: Why does a dental office smell?

A: Because we’re clean! Disinfectants used in dental clinics have improved over time and many of the “dentist smelling” ingredients have been removed to help eliminate that well known scent!

Q: Will I ever enjoy going to the dentist?

A: Probably not, but we’ll try to make your visit pleasant, pain free, and affordable.
