Nova Scotia Dentists’ Guide
Guide provides dentists with information about Nova Scotia’s Dental programs.
Each dentist who participates in the care of a patient is entitled to compensation for the services rendered to the patient. The guide identifies the amounts prescribed as claimable for insured services rendered by dentists.
Insured services means, dental services that are medically and/or dentally necessary as specified by the associated Government Nova Scotia program criteria and are listed in the Fee Schedule of the Insured Dental Services Tariff Regulations. The listing of any service or procedure in the Fee Schedule does not ensure payment by Department of Health and Wellness if the dental service is provided when it is not medically/dentally necessary.
