Alberta’s Updated Dental Fee Guide
Maximising the Benefit of Your Dental Insurance
We do encourage all our patients who have dental insurance to check which procedures are eligible for benefits, to take full advantage of their chosen scheme. The Alberta Dental Association & College highlights the fact that dental insurance should be regarded not as insurance, but more as a prepaid benefits plan, and as a way of helping people pay for some of their dental treatment. If you would like us to submit a Predetermination of Benefits to your insurance provider, then please contact West Airdrie Dental and we will be delighted to assist you.
The introduction of the new Alberta Fee Guide will not in any way affect the level of care provided by West Airdrie Dental to our patients and we are proud to be part of our community.
Welcome To Our Dental Family
How Will This Affect My Dental Insurance?
It is expected that the introduction of this guide could affect insurance coverage and it is possible your insurance company may decide to reduce their benefits coverage. Some insurance companies might choose to follow a fee guide lower than the updated Alberta Fee Guide, providing payment for claims as a percentage of the rate shown in their fee guide. Additionally, insurance companies will not provide comprehensive coverage for all procedures and treatments detailed in the updated Alberta Fee Guide. Here at West Airdrie Dental, we realise this can be confusing which is why our friendly dental team will work with you to discover which procedures are covered by your insurance provider. To do this, we can issue your insurance provider with a Predetermination of Benefits request on your behalf.
What Our Patients Say About Us
Great experience! Dr. Johal did an amazing job re-doing a 20 year old filling on my front tooth, right before my wedding! It is unnoticeable and my smile looked great in my wedding photos. The entire team is super friendly and professional! I will be going back for all my dental needs. Highly recommend!
Had a fantastic experience here. With the amount of dentists available it's hard to choose the right one. Everyone here was amazing. Front desk staff, hygienists, dentists etc. Very clean and professional. Everything was explained in full and I left with alot more knowledge than I could have expected. Billing is on par with the provincial guidelines as well. Can't go wrong!
Love the folks here! As like most people, I'm not a huge fan of my teeth being worked on. But everyone here from the girls at the front counter to the hygienists and dentist himself do everything in their power to make it as painless and enjoyable as possible. Great job you guys!!
All the staff are friendly and professional. Always on time. Rebecca, the hygienist, made me feel like I have been going there for years. Highly recommend this place. Oh and they do direct billing and explain everything for you. That’s a big plus too. Third visit and always left with a smile.
