Ontario’s Southdown Dental to accept crypto payment for services

Patients can now pay using digital currency for services ranging from basic checkup to children’s braces

Ontario-based dental clinic- Southdown Dental has reportedly included a new mode of payment option under which patients will be able to pay using cryptocurrency for any dental procedures, from regular checkups to children’s braces.

For the record, the clinic has added the crypto payment option to meet growing adoption of digital payments across various sectors. Cryptocurrency provides users autonomy, offers easy and quick payments, and reduces the cost of transactions.

Established in the year 1989, Southdown Dental offers services to the residents of Mississauga based in the Greater Toronto region, which is Canada’s most populous province. The clinic is known to be offering advanced dental services using latest technology.

According to a statement by the clinic, the center has admitted that most patients don’t have complete coverage for certain expensive procedures and due to the ongoing pandemic, many patients wish to keep cash in their bank accounts and spend their crypto holdings instead.

Dr. Kal Khaled, co-owner at Southdown Dental, was reportedly quoted stating that the clinic provides its client's financing, in case they need it, various payment plans, and payment options that have become a greater addition to digital payment solutions.

Be it a regular checkup, surgical procedure, or braces, patients can choose to use conventional payment options or cryptocurrency at the clinic.

As per Bob Vavaroutsos, Partner, Southdown Dental, their clinic is among the first in Canada to accept crypto as a payment option, offering patients novel options during unprecedented times.

Citing sources, Downtown Dental Hygiene Clinic, Toronto also accepts digital currencies. Even though South Dental is not the first in the industry to use cryptocurrency, it is among the pioneers.
