The Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan provides very few benefits for dental services. Provincial coverage is restricted to oral surgery services, such as cyst removal, joint and jaw surgery, and bone grafts. It doesn’t cover routine tooth-related treatments, and dentists charge for uninsured services (such as x-rays) that they perform in association with an insured service. That means you or your secondary insurer are responsible for paying any additional costs for services not covered under the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan.
With Special Benefits Insurance Services, Alberta residents can secure dental insurance to help cover the costs for dental services you need to stay on top of your ongoing oral health. Dental insurance can help minimize out-of-pocket expenses and protect your financial well-being—not to mention your peace of mind.
At SBIS, we specialize in making it easier for uninsured individuals to gain access to the health and dental insurance services they need in Alberta. We are an independent broker that works directly with people who want to maximize their dental insurance benefits. SBIS provides coverage for individuals who are losing or are not eligible for group benefits: retirees, laid-off workers, part-time or contract workers, students or over-age dependents, surviving spouses, self-employed individuals and small businesses. Our agency offers a streamlined process that makes purchasing dental insurance in Alberta straightforward, stress-free and easy.

You have made my day! I don’t think I have ever received such good service from any company before. Thank you so much for sending those reports to me. I plan to submit the info to the government and maybe get a little refund. Every penny counts.
Thank you Kasia for your diligence in notifying me upon approval of my application. I will as stated, out of courtesy, notify Great West Life, that I will not be proceeding with the application with them. I am pleased, as Green Shield was my first choice.
