New Dental Fee Guide Calls for 4.4 Per Cent Jump in Prices

Alberta’s dental association and college has released its 2020 guide for dental fees, outlining a roughly 4.4 per cent increase across a suite of services offered by dentists.

“As overhead increases the fees must also increase in order for practices to remain viable,” said Dr. Randall Croutze, CEO of the Alberta Dental Association and College (ADA&C), in a written response to questions.

The ADA&C registers and regulates dental services across the province, but that work isn’t covered by the province’s health-care system and dentists are free to set their own rates. The fee guide is meant to be a tool for consumers to compare prices, increase transparency, and encourage communication between patients and dentists.
