Our Dental Costs Vs. The Alberta Dental Fee Guide

Paying too much at the dentist?

Are you unhappy with how much your current dentist is charging you for your dental services? Going to the dental clinic for dental services shouldn’t be painful… for your mouth or your wallet. At Smiles Dental Group, our dental treatment fees are always below the Alberta Dental Fee Guide so you know you’re getting great value.

How Do We Set Our Dental Fees?

At Smiles Dental Group we are always below the Alberta Dental Association fee guide to give you the best value we possibly can. We want our patients to look forward to coming to our dental clinics. If you are interested in seeing what the official fee guidelines are, please see the Alberta fee guide.

What Is The Alberta Dental Fee Guide?

The Alberta Dental Fee Guide is a manual that recommends the prices of every procedure. Dentists have the option to go above or below these costs as they wish, based on their own needs of the practice.


At Smiles Dental Group, we do our absolute best to stay below the fees recommended in the guide. We think you shouldn’t have to worry about if you’re getting a good price or not, you can see it in the data. Since we know we have some of the lowest fees in Edmonton, we’re not afraid to tell you about our fees.

Is The Dental Fee Guide Mandatory?

No! The guide is just that, a “guide” for dental costs. We choose to be below the dental fees guide so you know you’re getting great value for your money. The vast majority of dentists, (as much as 97%, according the the Dental Health Survey) are all at or above the fee guides. This means we are literally in the top ~3% of the lowest prices available in Edmonton!

Considering the numbers, there aren’t a lot of other dental businesses that can say that.
