It's not just a visit, it's an experience! Your dental hygienist will customize your care based on preferences, needs and values. Direct billing is available to most insurance providers and in-house payment plans can be arranged for dental cleanings! Look forward to a bamboo brush with every dental hygiene visit! Check out the FAQ section on this page for frequently asked questions about fees and payment plans.
Our fees for preventive dental care are similar to those billed by other dental providers in our province for the same services and they are available to you here on our website.
The cost of a cleaning can vary based on your individualized needs. We offer complimentary consults to get quotes and to discuss in house payment plans! Please contact us for details via text/phone at 709-330-GUMS(4867) or schedule a consult by clicking the button below!
Services like scaling (removal of tartar) and polishing are billed based on how long time takes to perform a task. 1 unit of time = 15 minutes, 1/2 unit of time = 7.5 (or less) minutes. Other services (like fluoride treatments) are billed per application. It typically takes anywhere between 2-3 units of scaling to complete an adult dental cleaning. Rule of thumb, if it's been a while since your last visit, your cleaning may take a little longer at that initial visit!
A typical visit with a dental hygienist at our clinic can cost anywhere from $130-$220+ depending on your needs (the longer it takes to remove tartar, the more it costs). We offer complimentary assessments to discuss cost and a payment plan can be arranged if you are unable to afford to pay for the full cost of your visit.
We want to make preventive dental care more accessible by offering payment plans for dental cleanings! Plans can be customized to suit your budget, but our typical arrangement is to collect half of the cost of your treatment on the day of your visit and then the remaining balance can be paid in two separate payments (usually in 2 week intervals.
Consults are always complimentary if you'd like to discuss the exact cost of your dental cleaning up front (the cost can vary based on your needs).
