With the price of oil taking a plunge over the last several months and experts predicting that it will be a while before any sort of rebound, it seems likely that Alberta will be in a recession this year. The province has already seen a considerable loss of jobs, and, with those jobs, a loss of benefits as well.
If you live in Calgary and you are worried about how the Alberta recession could affect your employment and dental benefits, then it is recommended that you visit a general Calgary dentist to take care of your dental needs while you have coverage, especially if you think you might need some costly procedures.
The Cost of Dental Work in Alberta
Not having employment benefits and paying out-of-pocket for dental work in Alberta can be a challenge. Prices also vary considerably across Alberta, and can even vary within the same city. Depending on where you live, the fees of some of the more common procedures are as follows: dental exams are generally on the lower end in terms of pricing, a filling will be a little more costly, and a routine cleaning can be slightly more expensive than a filling. More extensive procedures, such as a root canal, can cost you more. With this information you can prioritize procedures based on what you currently have available to you in terms of coverage.
