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 tooth-related treatments, and dentists can 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 off-set the costs of dental services. We have insurance products that can give you access to dental services, so you can stay on top of your ongoing oral health needs. This can help minimize out-of-pocket expenses and protect your financial well-being—not to mention your peace of mind.
