If you are injured at work and need dental work as a result of your injury, the WCB can pay for dental expenses. You can see any dentist who’s registered or licensed in Saskatchewan. Learn what your dentist will need to invoice the WCB and what services require pre-authorization by the WCB.
If you are injured at work and need dental work as a result of your injury, the Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) will pay for work-related dental expenses. You can see any dentist who is registered or licensed in Saskatchewan. All dental services related to your work injury, with the exception of emergency treatment, need to be pre-authorized by the WCB. See the WCB’s Policy and Procedure Manual for more information.
Your dentist will provide the WCB with a report on the treatment of your work injury by filling out a Dentist’s Initial Report (M7) form. Your dentist will invoice the WCB and will need:
- your name
- your address
- your Provincial Health Number
- your date of birth
If you need emergency treatment, your dentist will submit a Dentist’s Initial Report (M7) form to the WCB.
If you paid the fees for emergency treatment of your work injury, submit copies of your original receipts and the M7 form, completed by your dentist or dental surgeon, indicating the work that was done. Keep your original receipts for 12 months.
