Fee Structure

Our fees generally follow the guideline of the Ontario Dental Association fee guide for dental treatment. It reflects the quality of care you receive and the investment we have made in our facility and in training our doctors and staff. We are committed to providing our patient with the highest and up to date care.

Our doctors provide treatment and diagnoses based on the condition of your oral and dental needs and offers a treatment plan that will best suit you. We will provide a treatment plan for any diagnosed conditions of your mouth during your comprehensive exam. Your treatment plan will include a breakdown of all applicable fees, and we will give you a cost estimate before treatment.

If you have a dental insurance, we will also provide an estimate of your insurance benefit and charges. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. If special arrangements are needed, these options can be discussed with our financial coordinator.

If you do not have dental insurance, we will provide you with offical reciept for medical expense which you may use for income tax purpose. Please consult with your tax advisor.
