FDCP Costs

Fundy Dental Community Program – Cost of Treatment

Treatment provided in FDCP is not free, but provided at a highly subsidized rate.  The cost of treatment for eligible patients is set at an hourly rate instead of the typical fee for service model.

Basic dental services are provided at a cost of $100 per hour of dental time (*).  These basic services include fillings and root canals.

Dental hygiene services are provided at a cost of $50 per hour of dental time (*).  All patients that will maintain some or all of their own teeth will have a hygiene appointment for cleaning and education.

Some specific services are still provided on a fee for service basis, including:

  • Sedation: oral ($25 / appointment), gas ($50 / appointment), IV ($100 / appointment)
  • Partial Dentures: Plastic partial denture to replace missing front teeth ($80) – note the $420 lab fee will be paid for by the Fundy Dental Community Association (FDCA is our not for profit charity)
  • Complete Denture: Each denture (upper or lower) is provided at a cost of $100 per arch- note the $525 lab fee will be paid for by the FDCA

 

(*) The Fundy Dental Community Association (FDCA) is the not for profit society fundraising to cover dental laboratory costs for patients to receive dentures at a reasonable cost.  If fundraising efforts are successful, subsequent monies will be used to reduce the patient cost per hour.  Our dream target is to raise enough money to reduce patient costs per hour from $100 to $25 per hour.  Help us reach this goal by donating to this worthy cause.
