Alberta Liberals Say They’d Pressure Ottawa for Universal Dental Care If Elected

Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan said if elected, his party would work to make dental care in the province more affordable.

“We know that dental health is critical to your overall health,” said Khan while announcing the party’s affordable dental-care platform on Monday in Calgary. “We’ve got to get dental fees down for Albertans.”

Khan said Albertans pay the highest dental fees in the country and have “spotty” coverage.

He outlined plans to make the market more competitive, including:

  • Providing $50 million in funding for affordable, community-based dental care.
  • Pressuring the federal government to fund universal dental care.
  • Requiring dentists to discuss prices up front.
