Most routine dental visits are eligible. X rays, diagnosis, scaling, exam are fine. Cosmetics are more along the lines of whitening, inlays, implants when they are for cosmetics and not fixing a problem, etc.JayTee1 wrote: ↑Apr 17th, 2017 7:02 pmOn the CRA Website under the list of eligible medical expenses for dental care it says: Dental services paid to a medical practitioner or a dentist. Expenses for purely cosmetic procedures are not eligible.
How do we know which dental services are eligible or not?
How do we know which services they consider cosmetic and which services they do not consider cosmetic?
For example, whenever you go to the dentist they'll charge you some kind of exam and diagnostic fee, x-ray fees etc. Are we allowed to submit those fees? or is it only fees that are procedural.
Anyone have any experience with this?
You can claim the expenses you paid out of pocket and are not covered by some insurance or benefits.
