What time is your appointment with the dentist?

Tooth Hurty!


Jokes aside - With playoff hockey in full swing, some toothless smiles (Stastny's is a winner!) may have reminded you of some of your own dental work that is overdue. Many procedures can be quite expensive, but the good news is that many of these qualify as medical expenses!

Dental services paid to a medical practitioner or dentist; including teeth straightening, and even dentures and dental implants all qualify (with the exception of purely cosmetic procedures). Orthodontic work such as braces are also included, though again any treatments that are purely for cosmetic reasons do not qualify. Although toothpaste and toothbrushes are essential to maintaining good oral hygiene, they are not a qualifying spend.

So go ahead and book that appointment (and save the receipt!) to get that summer smile you've been pinching pennies for.
