Dental Insurance Plans in Nova Scotia

Many people skip regular trips to the dentist because they can’t afford it, and most people don’t qualify for dental coverage under Nova Scotia’s provincial insurance plan.  But that can be a big mistake.  No matter how carefully you brush and floss at home, there is no substitute for professional care to help you maintain good oral health.  Routine dental visits may help prevent certain problems from occurring, and they give dentists a chance to identify small problems and fix them before they become larger ones.

According to the Canadian Dental Association, children and adults should make regular trips to the dentist for preventative treatment at least once a year.  Special Benefits Insurance Services provides an array of Nova Scotia dental insurance plans that can help offset the cost of seeing a dentist by reducing your out-of-pocket expenses and minimizing the impact to your bottom line.  Ensuring you have the appropriate coverage will give you and your family the peace of mind and financial security you need.

Nova Scotia Dental Insurance Plans

At Special Benefits, we understand everyone’s personal situation and coverage needs are unique. Our plans are designed for anyone who wants to enhance their dental insurance coverage. It doesn’t matter if you have a full-time or part-time job, have recently come off of group coverage or haven’t been covered in years, we have numerous plans from Green Shield Canada, Manulife Financial and other providers, to meet your individual needs and fit your budget.


Those looking for dental insurance in Nova Scotia can choose coverage from Manulife Financial under the following plans:

  • Manulife Flexcare DentalPlus: A flexible dental insurance plan that offers a base level of coverage that can be enhanced by custom add-ons to provide a personalized plan.
  • Manulife Follow-Me: Uninterrupted coverage for prescription drugs and other supplemental services, including dental care, if you apply within 60 days of losing group benefits (for those that require prescription drugs).
  • Manulife Association: A wide range of supplemental dental insurance coverage for qualified applicants, with increasing levels: Base, Bronze, Silver and Gold plans.

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.

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.
