How much does dental work cost in Toronto?

Dental work can often vary massively in cost, depending on the dental practice, as well as your individual insurance plan. 

If you have a good dental plan the majority of the costs are likely to be covered by them. 

However if this is not the case when an individual may have to set up a payment plan or figure out their own out-of-pocket financing. 

In order to understand how much you should pay for your treatments, patients can consult the Ontario Dental Association (for Ontario) as each province implements its own fee guide for certain procedures. 

This being said, there is no fixed price for dental treatments. 

 

Dental Procedure in Toronto, Ontario

The ODA publishes a Suggested Fee Guide for General Practitioners

With this guide, dentists may be able to give you a cost estimate before a check up. 

However, you’ll need an in-person exam before your dentist can accurately tell you how much a procedure will cost. 

If for whatever reason, you believe the cost to be too high, patients are more than welcome to request a secondary referral from another dentist.
