Costs and Financing

Free Initial Consultation

It is very important to choose the practice and the dentist you feel comfortable with. Come in for a coffee, tour the office, meet with the dentist of your choice for a complimentary consultation. Learn about treatment options and have your questions answered.

If you need fees specific to your treatment the dentist will need to conduct a Complete Exam. The results of the exam are presented to you along with digital x-rays, videos and computer animations.  If you are in pain, we recommend an Emergency Exam.  

Fees

Most dentists, including Riverpark, follow the Ontario fee guide. That's why the fees are pretty standard among dental practices. Some patients commented that our fees are lower than what they were quoted at other offices. We use the same fees as other practices. What we think makes the difference, is how your dentist and your Patient Care Specialist help you prioritize your treatment according to your needs, goals, dental coverage and financial situation.  Your dentist will make recommendations of what needs to be done immediately and what can wait.  For larger procedures you will also be given a copy of the presentation to take home in case you would like to seek a second opinion or take more time to make your decision.  There is never any pressure.

 

Payment Terms

You will be asked to pay the fee at the time of service.  We will submit your claim to the benefit provider electronically and you will get reimbursed as quickly as within a few days.  Since we already checked with your benefit provider for what you are covered for, there should be no surprises.  Payments may be made with cash, debit, bank draft, Visa, MasterCard and American Express.  If you have any questions regarding your bill, your Patient Care Specialist will sit with you in a private area and go over it in detail.

Riverpark Will Help You Finance your Treatment

Riverpark offers several generous financing options. We'll find a way to make it work.

Tax-Deductible Dentistry

Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) allows small self-employed individuals and corporations to tax-deduct their dental expenses in a tax-efficient and cost-efficient manner. We are the first and only practice in Ontario to partner up with Trusted Advisor to help patients take advantage of this opportunity. Schedule a complimentary consult to learn how to save on your taxes.

Good Oral Hygiene and no Dental Benefits?

Dental benefits are expensive and if you don't use them you lose them. Your benefit provider doesn't give you a 'discount' for not using your dental plan. We offer an affordable plan that is focused on prevention. If you take good care of your teeth and come regularly for your hygiene appointments, the fee can be reduced even more.

 

Looking to save up some money for dentistry?

We recommend a secure plan for you to save for your dental treatment. You will be able to save up for your treatment faster than putting the money in your savings account.

The Extras

Massages, hot towels, parafin wax treatments, beverages, entertainment, children play area or patient education are added benefits that come at NO ADDITIONAL COST.  Our philosophy is simple - rather than pay a 3rd party to promote us, we invest in our patient experience so that you can tell your family and friends about us.
