Each Canadian province has its own provincial fee guide for dentistry. The British Columbia Dental Association (BCDA) produces an annual suggested fee guide for BC dentists, while Alberta Dental Association and College produces the fee guide for the Alberta province. The fee guides are just that—guides. The fees contained in the fee guides are only suggestions that are to serve as a guide only for dentists as they determine their costs.
The team at Pleasant Valley Dental has compared the fee guide for BC to the fee guide for Alberta, and—to sum things up—the Alberta fee guide suggests charges significantly higher than the fees recommended for BC dentists to charge.
