Dental Insurance Plans for Canadians
You may not know that but thousands of people in Canada do not have an appropriate Dental plan set up.
Since Provincial health care plans may not satisfy all of your medical care needs, you can secure yourself with a supplementary Dental Insurance Canada with increasing benefits over the years.
Since the employee benefits plan you’re accustomed to at your work place may not cover you during retirement, be prepared with supplementary dental insurance for canadians.
-Small Business Owner:
Consider supplementary coverage if you are self-employed, working within a budget, and perhaps do not have a group plan set-up.
-Seeking Additional Coverage:
Supplementary dental insurance Canada coverage is a good idea if you or one of your dependents needs additional coverage for special needs that are not included in your current group or work health care plan.
In order to apply your Provincial medical insurance plan must be currently active.

A: Unfortunately, routine dental care is not a part of your provincial insurance coverage. While certain medical procedures might be covered if treatment requires you to undergo an oral surgery as a result of a medical emergency, routine oral care is excluded from the government benefits.
With that said, the best way to go about securing your financial well-being when it comes to paying dental care bills is to get a dental insurance policy that provides comprehensive coverage for both major and minor dental treatment services including cleanings, check ups, oral surgeries, root canals, etc.
A: Although the list of insured services and benefit limits varies depending on the policy of your choice as well as the province of residence, most individual dental insurance plans usually include the following benefits:
Diagnostic services such as exams and scans; preventive measures including fluoride treatments, polishing; scaling and soot planning; surgical procedures, root canals; endodontic and orthodontics; certain restorative treatments such as fillings; prosthodontic Services including complete or partial dentures services, repairs to onlays / Inlays, bridges and crowns; as well as major restoration of teeth.

A: As with most private insurance policies there are certain limits on covered services.
Generally, individual dental insurance policies offer to pay a percentage of the covered services for up to a certain amount per year i.e. 70% or 80% with a $500-$800 annual limit, while the remaining portion of eligible expenses has to be paid out of pocket.
It’s worth noting that many dental insurance plans have a progression-based system when your benefit limits increase the longer you have your coverage in place. For example, during the first year you are covered for 60% of the bill for a maximum of $500. Your coverage will increase to 70% and $700 during the second year, while coverage for year 3 and beyond will go up to $900 and 80%.
