Are you concerned about the high cost of Dental Fees?
Good news! as of June 1, 2019, High River Dental Centre now follows the New 2019 Dental Fee Guide as provided by the Alberta Dental Association & College and the Alberta Government. This way, you know that you are being charged the lowest fees for our General and Family Dental Services as outlined in the fee guide.
At High River Dental Centre, we have always been competitive with our dental fees, yet we felt that it is important during these tough economic time to make sure that our fees are in line with the recommended fee guide. It is always our goal to be fair and reasonable in the fees that we charge our dental patients, however, factors involved with running a business, such as overhead, hiring the best staff as well as the high cost of modern dental technology, this way we can ensure that we are competitive with other local dental practices.
This is why we typically review our fees annually to make sure we are offering our patients fair and reasonable prices.
In the table below, you can compare our prices for popular dental services to the 2019 Dental Fee Guide.
