Financial Policies & Dental Insurance
The Patient's Responsibilities
There are more than 30,000 dental plan contracts in Ontario, and each one is a little different from the next. As a smart consumer, you should make it your job to understand the details of your dental plan, and to supply your dental plan administrator with necessary information such as pre-treatment forms, claim forms or any supplementary information. You are also responsible for making arrangements for payment to your dentist for the dental care received.
As your dentists, in accordance with the Regulated Health Professions Act and applicable regulations, we will give you information on available treatment options appropriate to address your dental care needs, regardless of the nature and extent of your dental plan coverage. In addition, we will assist you by supplying information required to enable you to receive benefits to which you may be entitled under your dental plan.

How We Help You With Your Dental Plan
We understand Dental Insurance can be difficult to understand. So we have created a complimentary guide for our patients (click here) that will help you find out exactly what sort of coverage you have. Using this guide (click here), you can contact your plan administrator or insurance company and understand the details of your benefits better.
Remember, you are a partner in your oral health. All treatment and care decisions should be made by you and your dentist based upon your actual needs, aside from your dental plan coverage. Your dental plan is not necessarily a treatment plan!
