The Perfect Smile™ follows the Ontario Dental Hygienists’ Association (ODHA) Fee Guide to set prices for patients. In most cases, this results in a significant savings to the consumer and aligns directly with the re-imbursement policy of most major insurers.
The Guide is available at the ODHA website.
In order to be fully compliant with COVID-19 regulations, we are charging a very modest fee for the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required to protect our staff and patients. As well, a small additional mobile fee applies to services delivery to retirement residences.
New patients often (always?) ask how much will it cost?
Our life is made a little easier when answering the question as we, by choice, align with the aforementioned Guide and a cursory peek at the Guide will show you that pricing is linked to effort (expressed in units).
The next question would naturally be how much effort is required?
This is a more difficult question to answer without first examining your teeth and gums. Factors affecting effort (and by consequence pricing) include time since your last cleaning (leading to tartar above and below the gum line); time since your last periodontal assessment; the presence of active gum disease, possibly with bleeding gums, and even more pedestrian conditions such as teeth crowding.
It is important to note that we leave time with every appointment to complete the treatment in its entirety, no cutting corners or deferring to the next visit. This may result in a slightly higher initial cost as we work to bring your oral hygiene to a healthy state.
Feel free to call the office to discuss further.
