Dental Insurance & Finances Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why Follow The Latest Alberta Dental Fee Guide!

At North Main Family Dental, we follow the latest Alberta Dental recommended Fee Guide!

Q: Do you offer direct billing?

Yes, we are pleased to offer direct billing, also called assignment. However, please check with us first as to whether your insurance coverage offers this convenience.

Q: What costs will my dental insurance company cover?

Benefits change from time to time, so it is important to make sure you know what your plan covers. If you provide us with a breakdown of what your benefits are, we would be more than happy to give you an ESTIMATE of what your costs will be.

Q: What factors do you consider when providing an estimate for treatment?

Our estimates are based on the most recent information we have on file. If you are concerned about exactly what costs you will be responsible for, simply ask about our ‘Pre-Treatment Estimate.’

Q: What is a ‘Pre-Treatment Estimate’?

A Pre-Treatment Estimate gives you the exact cost of the treatment. Upon request, we will file this paperwork with your insurance provider before any dental work is performed. While this may delay your treatment, you will know exactly what (if any) out-of-pocket costs you may be required to pay.

Q: What payment options are available to me?

We require payment in full at the time of treatment. We accept MasterCard, Visa, and Interac (Debit). Our Dental Club is also an exciting way to plan and budget for your dental needs.

Q: What is the Dental Club?

We believe everyone deserves proper dental care and the confidence to share their smile without breaking the bank. Instead of dreading the high cost of a dental visit, which can make it tempting to put off, you simply pay a small monthly amount. This ensures you and your family get the preventative care you need when you need it. If you are self-employed or do not have insurance, this is a great way for you to get the regular dental care you need! Click here to learn more about our exclusive Dental Club.

Q: Will this benefit me if I am self-employed or do not have insurance?

If you are without dental benefits, you may be inclined to forgo dental services. As a member of the Dental Club, you can budget a small amount each month and ensure you and your family get your twice-annual dental exams and cleanings without the inconvenience of managing a large expense all at once. We can also show you options on how to pay your Dental Club membership pre-tax through your company.

Do not put off regular dental care because you do not have insurance. Get the care you need and prevent costly long-term problems by joining the North Main Family Dental Club today!

Q: What if I already have insurance?

If you have insurance, it is often frustrating to find that the coverage you have is not sufficient to cover all your needs. Restrictions, deductibles, and limits often mean you need to shortchange the care you want. By joining the Dental Club, you get a fixed amount you pay each month and know that you can get preventative cleanings and exams that ensure your dental health. Each time you come in for treatment, we simply submit your billings to the insurance company. You receive your reimbursement directly from them. Our staff will be more than happy to show you how to structure your insurance coverage, so you can maximize the benefits you receive. Often, patients find it beneficial to pay out of pocket for routine preventative dentistry, saving their limits for other work such as fillings, crowns or bridges. We would be happy to show you how to best take advantage of your specific situation.
