Dental Insurance Benefits for Albertans

The Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan provides very few benefits for dental services. Provincial coverage is restricted to oral surgery services, such as cyst removal, joint and jaw surgery, and bone grafts. It doesn’t cover routine tooth-related treatments, and dentists charge for uninsured services (such as x-rays) that they perform in association with an insured service. That means you or your secondary insurer are responsible for paying any additional costs for services not covered under the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan.

With Special Benefits Insurance Services, Alberta residents can secure dental insurance to help cover the costs for dental services you need to stay on top of your ongoing oral health. Dental insurance can help minimize out-of-pocket expenses and protect your financial well-being—not to mention your peace of mind.

Dental Insurance Options for Alberta Residents

We offer a wide range of dental insurance products to give you the right type of coverage in Alberta through our Prism health and dental programs. In partnership with Green Shield, we provide dental insurance in three programs:

  • Prism Spectra: Offers a full spectrum of benefits and high benefit maximums.
  • Prism Precision: Offers dental coverage and guarantees enrollment.
  • Prism Continuum: Is perfect if you’re no longer covered by a company group plan. No medical questionnaire is required, and coverage is guaranteed if you apply within 90 days of losing your group health benefits (also covers prescription drugs).

The Prism Spectra program is another option if you are leaving a company group plan or don’t currently have health and dental coverage in place and are looking for comprehensive coverage complemented by high benefit maximums.
The Prism Precision program may be right for you if you are looking for a comprehensive dental plan. There are 2 dental options to choose from P3 and P4; both of which have varying dental maximums. Both of these plans also include coverages for services and treatments that are not covered by the government. No medical questionnaire required, and coverage is guaranteed, even for pre-existing conditions.
The Prism Continuum program may be your best solution if you, your spouse, or your dependents are losing, or have lost your company group health benefits within the last 90 days and are looking for guaranteed coverage even with pre- existing conditions.


SBIS also works with Manulife Financial to offer dental insurance to Albertans under the following coverage plans:

  • Manulife Guaranteed Issue Enhanced Plan: No needles, no nurses, no questions — your acceptance is guaranteed at time of application even if you have a pre-existing condition.
  • Manulife Association: Offers 4 affordable choices of coverage i with increasing benefit levels; Base, Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Thank you Kasia for your diligence in notifying me upon approval of my application. I will as stated, out of courtesy, notify Great West Life, that I will not be proceeding with the application with them. I am pleased, as Green Shield was my first choice.


We have always appreciated the services we have received from Green Shield and your personal help has been amazing. Thank you so much for all you have done to help our family over the last year of transition.
