I am considering the possibility of getting a dental bone graft because I have bone loss in a tooth and this would prevent me from getting an implant. This procedure is technically not required for me, but it was suggested by my periodontist. It's a tough surgery that can take between 1 to 2 weeks to heal (or so I read).
Now, my company offers paid sick time and paid time off.
My question is: am I supposed to use my PTO for this? I was always under the impression that paid sick time was for when you became unpredictably sick. In my case I would know well in advance when I would have surgery.
I know I should ask HR, and I'm going to, but I wanted to hear about other people's experiences. If it matters, I'm in Canada.
