Frequently Asked Questions

The Canada Health Act does not cover prescription drugs, home care, or long-term care or dental care. Provinces provide partial coverage for children, those living in poverty, and seniors.

“Fee Schedules” are the price of dental procedures. Insurance companies set their own procedure prices they consider allowable, which may be different from your dentist’s. The Dental Association Fee Guides are a helpful tool to increase transparency of dental costs and procedures. This Fee Guide is a recommended guide and not a mandatory fee structure. Dentists set the fees they charge on services based on their individual dental practice.
