Dental Insurance Coverage in British Columbia

You may not realize it, but dental health has a significant impact on your complete physical condition. The cost of dental care is steadily rising in British Columbia, making it imperative to have access to supplemental dental insurance. The government’s coverage for dental care isn’t designed to handle the basic maintenance, preventative and other services you need.

Special Benefits Insurance Services can help. We sell a number of BC dental insurance plans to help residents of British Columbia off-set the cost of their care. With coverage from Special Benefits, you can make routine and emergency visits to your dentist. This can help address any major problems you may have, as well as prevent small issues from becoming more serious. A British Columbia dental insurance plan provides a financial safety net that can save you money today, tomorrow and well into the future.

Dental Insurance Solutions for British Columbia Residents

British Columbians can choose from a variety of British Columbia dental insurance plans with Special Benefits. Green Shield and Special Benefits work together to provide Prism Spectra, Prism Precision and Prism Continuum programs. These cost-effective plans come in varying levels of coverage, so you can purchase the right one for your situation.

The Prism Spectra program is another option if you are leaving a company group plan or don’t currently have health and dental coverage in place and are looking for comprehensive coverage complemented by high benefit maximums.
The Prism Precision program may be right for you if you are looking for a practical alternative for basic coverage for services and treatments that are no longer covered by the government. No medical questionnaire required and coverage is guaranteed, even for pre-existing conditions.
The Prism Continuum program may be your best solution if you, your spouse, or your dependents are losing, or have lost your company group health benefits within the last 90 days and are looking for guaranteed coverage even with pre- existing conditions.


We also work with Manulife Financial to provide flexible, customizable coverage under the FlexCare, FollowMe and Manulife Association plans. Make your choices from these options:

  • DentalPlus Basic Plan: Coverage for fillings, cleanings, scaling, examinations, polishing, certain extractions, and recall visits every 9 months.
  • DentalPlus Enhanced Plan: Enhanced coverage for fillings, cleanings, scaling, examinations, polishing, certain extractions, and recall visits every 6 months.
  • FollowMe: Guaranteed acceptance for those who apply within 60 days of losing group benefits – especially helpful for those taking prescription drugs.
  • Manulife Association: Health, dental and travel insurance coverage for qualified applicants.

Special Benefits Helps Fill the Gap

A dental insurance plan from Special Benefits is a great way to bridge the gap between government contributions and your out-of-pocket expenses. Provincial government insurance normally only covers dental and oral surgery when it’s medically required to be performed in hospital. For example, a complex surgery involving the removal of an impacted third molar (wisdom tooth) may be covered. However, the extraction of a healthy wisdom tooth—even if impacted—may not be a covered benefit. With British Columbia dental insurance from Special Benefits, you can spend less time worrying about what services are not covered and more time tending to your dental care.
