Visiting the dentist is nowhere near the same experience it was in the past. Nowadays, it seems out of place to “fear” going to the dentist, and for good reason. Advancements in this field have made every part of the experience more pleasant, from working with the staff on a plan that works for you to the teeth cleaning itself.

Still, one area that many people are unfamiliar with is the cost of dental check-ups in Calgary. There are many reasons for this, not the least of which is that every downtown dental clinic can set their prices according to the needs of their practice. But, that doesn’t mean it is a rogue operation with no benchmark by which to guide their pricing.

What is the Dental Fee Guide?

The dental fee guide was first introduced just before the turn of the century and was updated for the first time in 2018. This guide breaks down the various operations a dentist is likely to perform and offers pricing suggestions that match the complexity and length of time it takes to complete them. The whole guide is available here.


The Cost of Dental Check-ups

There are various costs associated with dental check-ups at a downtown dental clinic, which change based on the number of adult teeth and other variables. Still, what most people will be looking for is a “permanent dentition”, which is a “complete examination of an adult generally with only adult teeth.” The suggested price for this task is $101.48. 

These are usually coupled with periodontal exams and x-rays to give your dentist a complete overview of your oral health. All told, the price suggestions range from $64.24-$101.48 for the common examinations.

Again, it is important to remember that these prices are suggestions from the Alberta Dental Associate and College, so you will likely find differences between dentists. For best results, come to a downtown dental clinic you can trust!

We’ve recently become aware of some false advertising circulating on TikTok, claiming that we offer dental implants at a price that simply isn’t accurate.


Your trust means everything to us, and we want to ensure that you’re well-informed. Please be cautious of online ads that appear fraudulent, especially those on TikTok, that claim to represent our clinic or other dental practices. We will never promote dental services with a specific price point, as everyone’s needs vary, and factors such as coverage requirements differ from person to person.


If you’re considering dental implants or any other dental work, we encourage you to reach out to us directly. Our team is here to provide you with accurate information and guidance on your dental needs. Your oral health is our top priority, and we’re dedicated to helping you make informed decisions!


Here are some examples of how the deceptive advertisements might look.
