How do TAC Dental Claims Work and What is Covered?
All you need is your TAC Claim Number – We do all the rest.
At Abbotsford Dental, we have seen first-hand the effects of trauma. It can be distressing, painful, and a process that requires urgent, professional dental care. Car accidents are horrible experiences at the best of times, where just mentioning it can make you a little uneasy.
They can obviously seriously damage your vehicle, but more importantly, can damage you and the other people involved. Sometimes, and as a result of a nasty prang, your teeth and mouth will suffer the brunt of it, and will consequently require urgent, dental and medical treatment.
