Dental fees are the amounts your dentist charges for the services they provide. In 2017, the Alberta Dental Association and College (ADA&C) introduced a dental fee guide to help mitigate the rising costs of oral health services in Alberta. While the ADA&C encourages dental providers to use this guide to set prices for their practice it is not mandatory, which means the cost of services can still vary between dental offices.
The ASEBP has increased our Dental Benefit List fees to match the ADA&C 2022 fee guide (effective January 1, 2023). However, while you may have 100 per cent coverage for certain dental services, 100 per cent of your dentist's bill may not be covered if they charge more than what is outlined in the ASEBP Dental Benefit List.
To avoid surprises, become informed about how the expected dental fees align with your plan:
