Alta Dental

Insurance

Dental plans that many employers offer are meant to assist you in paying for your dental treatment. Insurance companies who provide the dental plans are called benefit carriers.

Benefit carriers reimburse your treatment depending on the level of coverage that your employer determines. When you visit our Vancouver dental clinic, it is our role to develop a treatment plan based on your unique oral health needs. However, you may require different treatment than what’s covered by your dental plan, and it is your right to choose whether you want to proceed with treatment or not. 

At Alta Dental, we accept all insurances and will be happy to contact your benefit carrier on your behalf to see if your treatment is covered under your plan. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to call our office, and a knowledgeable member of our team will be happy to assist you.
