Dental Insurance Benefits for Albertans

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.

Let Special Benefits Help You!

At Special Benefits, 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. Special Benefits provides coverage for individuals who are losing or not eligible for group benefits such as; retirees, job loss, 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.
