CONDITIONS AND BENEFITS FOR PREPAYED PACKAGES SERVICE AND SERVICE

If the patient does not use all the services from the prepaid package within the specified period, he is not entitled to a refund for the services he did not use. If the patient, due to justified reasons, is not able to use all services from the paid package, Polyclinic Smile gives the patient the opportunity within 1 year from the date of issuing the invoice to use other services provided by the department for which the treatment package / services was paid or transfer unused services for use by a third party. The third party has the right to use the treatment in the remaining amount that was not used personally by the patient who paid for the treatment / service package within the department where the package was paid and within the remaining period of one year, with written permission of the patient in advance.

If the patient does not want to use the paid package for any of the above possibilities, the patient is not entitled to a refund for unused treatments / services and they are considered used in full. If the patient does not cancel the prepaid treatment / service within 48 hours before the agreed date, it is considered that the agreed treatment / service has been duly performed.

It is especially important to note that the price of treatments / services that are an integral part of the package is determined in a preferential amount compared to the price that these treatments / services have outside the package and the price is calculated at the unit price indicated in the valid price list of the Polyclinic Smile in the month of package purchase. Polyclinic Smile guarantees the quality of each treatment and service provided, however, due to the uniqueness of the human body and individualized reactions of each organism, there is a possibility that the desired results may not be achieved or to a lesser extent, especially if the patient does not follow all steps that are necessary to achieve the goal of the treatment and / or services performed with which he was familiar in advance. In this case, the patient is not entitled to a refund of the money paid for treatments and / or services.

We note that the funds from the paid advances were immediately and promptly engaged for the purpose of procuring the necessary materials necessary for the performance of the agreed procedures of each individual patient who paid the advance.
The payment made in advance will fully cover all further agreed works and procedures for which it was paid, and that, in agreement with each individual payer, it can be used, with the payer’s written consent, exclusively for procedures on other patients or family members of the patient that paid the advance if the purchased material is compatible with those works and procedures that need to be performed on another patient to whom the right to use the advance is transferred.

Patients who have paid an advance are also informed that it will not be possible to meet the requirements for the refund of the advance, since the works and procedures contracted and paid for will be performed immediately after the health conditions are met provided that, as already mentioned, the payment was immediately used to cover the procurement of material costs for each individual payer.

PLACEMENT OF STRAUMANN DENTAL IMPLANTS

Each Straumann implant carries a material guarantee proving the absence of any material impurities, and the guarantee and the originality of the implant are proven with the help of a Straumann passport with a unique serial number for each implant installed. Polyclinic Smile replaces the non-integrated implant at the expense of Polyclinic Smile exclusively to the patient whose implant was installed in Polyclinic Smile, provided that he followed all instructions of the Smile Polyclinic oral surgeon and came for regular post-operative check-ups.

Straumann has a lifetime warranty on the implant, and a 10-year warranty on prosthetic components (abutment and screw).

PROSTHETICS ON IMPLANTS (CROWNS, BRIDGES)

If the dental implant falls out, it is necessary to replace the prosthetic work. Taking into account the reasons for implant dropout will depend on who bears the cost of prosthetics. If the implant falls out within 90 days from the day of the prosthetic treatment, the cost of the new work is borne by the Polyclinic Smile.

If the implant falls out due to failure due to poor hygiene, non-attendance at controls and similar non-compliance with the instructions of Polyclinic Smile specialist and reasons that could not be influenced by Polyclinic Smile, the cost of new work is borne by the patient.

PROSTHETICS ON YOUR OWN TEETH (CROWNS, VENEERS, BRIDGES)

If the loss of prosthetic work occurred immediately after prosthetic treatment, the cost of new work is borne by the Polyclinic Smile.

If the implant falls out due to failure due to poor hygiene, non-attendance at controls and similar non-compliance with the instructions of Polyclinic Smile specialist and reasons that could not be influenced by Polyclinic Smile, the cost of new work is borne by the patient.

WARRANTIES FOR PROSTHETICS

Acrylic dentures also have a 2-year warranty if they are permanent dentures. Retention elements such as retention clasps, ie anchors on dentures, have a 2-year warranty. The warranty does not apply to temporary crowns, bridges and mobile dentures as temporary solutions.
