How much does a visit to the dentist cost?
Your first visit includes a dental exam of your teeth and mouth, X-rays (as many as required by the condition of your teeth and mouth) and any urgent treatment. If no urgent treatment is required, we will suggest a tooth cleaning.
How much does just a cleaning cost?

Depending on the condition of your teeth and gums, cleaning/deep cleaning of your teeth will take 15 minutes to one full hour and will cost 46-90 $. We will also suggest a polishing and fluoridation at an additional cost.

How much does a filling cost?
The cost of a filling depends on the size of the filling, which tooth and what material is used. After the dentist examines your teeth, we will be able to estimate the cost of your fillings.
How much does a dental crown cost?
Crowns typically cost 1100-1300$, depending on complexity and the lab fee. The lab fee depends on the material. Most dental insurance plans cover crowns at 50%, but some won’t cover crowns/bridges/dentures at all.
Do you do white fillings instead of silver fillings?
Yes, we do both white and silver fillings. The dentist will suggest the material based on the position and size required, and will explain the benefits. It is your decision which material to use. Most dental insurance plans do not fully cover white filling in back teeth and you will have to pay the difference.
Do you accept dental benefit plans (insurance)?
Yes, commercial dental plans are accepted at Shen Dental.

We make an effort to collect payment directly from the insurance company (assignment); however some dental plans require that the patient first pays for the treatment, then the patient is re-imbursed by the insurance company. Your dental benefit plans will cover 50-100% of dental costs for certain treatments, but other treatments, such as implants, are not covered. While we will try to estimate the portion paid by your plan, there may be unexpected differences. You are still responsible for any non-payment in whole or in part if the insurance coverage information given is inaccurate or expired. You are responsible for paying the percentage/portion of treatment costs NOT covered by your dental plan at the end of each appointment, and pay any difference if applicable (we will send you an updated statement).

We highly recommend you verify your coverage information with the proper department in your company before your first appointment.
Foe clients insured under the Provincial Ministry of Health, please note that we bill the difference between the Ministry fee and BC Dental Association Fee Guide.

What forms of payment are accepted?
We accept cash, Interact and credit cards (Visa and MasterCard).
Do you accept payment plans?
Payment plans are determined on a case-by-case basis.
