Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
We know that money matters to you. When looking at family dentists in Calgary, you’re also worried about paying bills and making ends meet. As a result, one of the most frequent questions we receive regards how much of the cost of a procedure will be covered by your insurance.
There are a few aspects to this question. First, if you and your family are just coming in for routine, regularly scheduled general dentist visits, dental insurance will cover most, if not all, of the cost. Cleanings, check-ups, a few fillings, dental insurance is designed for these options.
On the other hand, dental insurance is not designed to cover the cost of significant, long-term dental procedures. And the vast majority of dental insurance plans will not cover cosmetic dentistry. As a result, if you’re coming to our family dentist for cosmetic procedures you likely cannot expect your insurance company to cover the cost.
Still, check with your insurance company for the details of your specific plan.
Our family dentist offers reasonable financing options. We believe you should have the chance to get the procedures you need to give you the smile you deserve.
Finally, you should know that Canadian tax law allows you to write off a certain percentage of any out-of-pocket dental expenses you have. Consult with a tax professional for more details.
