From Deseret News: Interesting
Since opening in May, the Merit dental clinic — with two part-time dentists, three hygienists and bilingual assistants — has served 1,136 patients with 2,724 appointments, providing more than $340,000 in benefits to employees. Patients don’t pay anything out of pocket and can get up to $3,000 in care per person each year.
I find this a bit disturbing. The assumption is that all dentists are the same. A commodity. If a dentist is a dentist is a dentist then why not choose the free one offered by the company?
What about quality of care, customer comfort, continuing care and new technology to improve service?
