    Hi Emilie, thank you for your comment! The Alberta Seniors program covers a maximum amount of $1,129.48 per plate for complete dentures. Even though you have $5000 allocated every 5 years, they will only cover that maximum amount per denture. A lot of clinics charge above that amount. At YYC Denture Clinic if you are 100% covered, you will not have to pay anything out of pocket. We follow the Seniors fee guide. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thanks and have a great day!
    Smiles,

    If I am covered 100% of the 5,000 dollars allowed under Alberta Dental for seniors, why are my basic dentures, top and bottom, not covered fully and I am required to pay over 1,000 to my denturist. This tells me my dentures are only partly covered, even though I have not used all of my 5,000 allotted. I also have used none of my dental allowance for the last ten years after becomming a senior. Whom can i call to appeal this?

    My wife & I are both 73 years of age and our worn out dentures require replacing. Between the two of us we make roughly 50K a year in pensions. Might we qualify for assistance?

    Hi Christina,
    Thank you for your comment! Unfortunately we do not have a location in Edmonton. You can try and call around and see which clinic follows the Alberta Seniors Program Fee Guide. There should be a couple that do, and if you have 100% coverage through that program, you will not have to pay anything out of pocket. Hope this helps!

    A couple years ago I went to a dentist ( during covid) and he kept saying I can’t see as he worked on me. I then got upper and lower partial plates. Within a year another dentist recommended having an eye tooth pulled as it should have been a t least a year ago. Now pulled my upper plate is barely usable, and I do only in public.

    Why is only dental coverage for “real” teeth?? Most seniors need dentures or dentures to be re-lined etc?? I would think this would be covered by alberta senior dental coverage

    I went to get dentures and even though my Alberta seniors benefit says 100% coverage they told me I would have to pay 1100.00 .and I don’t know why. I thought it was 100% coverage I can’t afford 1100.00. the whole bill would have been around 3200.00…why do I have to pay 1100.00 ?
