Dental plans are developed to offset some of the costs of treatment, they are generally not designed based on your unique dental care needs, nor do they cover the full range of dental treatments available today.

While we can help you understand your plan coverage, we are NOT experts on all the details of your dental insurance. The details of your plan are protected by the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA); this makes it extremely difficult for us to get all of the information on your behalf.

You should know how your plan is designed, since this can significantly affect the plan’s coverage and your out-of-pocket expenses. This also helps support you in making informed decisions about improving and maintaining your oral health.

Each of the thousands of plans contain a list of conditions or circumstances that limit or exclude services from coverage. Limitations may be related to time or frequency; the number of procedures permitted during a stated period. Even plans that indicate 100% coverage often have limitations.

As a dental care provider, our relationship is with you, not your insurance company and Dr. Girard focuses on ‘patient centered care’.

We treat our patients based on what is best for your oral health not what is best for your dental insurance provider.

We are happy to work with you to assist in maximizing your plan benefits and minimizing your out of pocket expenses; but ultimately it is your responsibility. As such, all fees not covered by your dental plan are your responsibility.

Thank-you for entrusting Oaklands Dental with your dental care,

Dr. Franco Girard and Team
