New ‘Access to Dentistry’ survey reveals high-income earners are worried
A recent Leger survey, commissioned by Dentistry for Everyone, reveals even Canadians (43 per cent) earning incomes over $100k would like to get more dental work but are worried about the cost, compared to 62 per cent with a household income of less than $100k.
Furthermore, over half of all Canadians (56%) agree they’d like to get more needed dental work completed, but are worried about being able to afford it.
“I’ve seen lawyers to low-income earners worry about affording the services needed for good oral health. Even patients with dental insurance and government support worry about costs,” said Dr. ElMofty.
Additional survey data reveals access to dental care can be painful:
- 53% of Canadians would be more likely to go to the dentist if they could book online or through an app with upfront pricing
- 75% wish they knew how much their dentist appointment would cost before they booked the appointment
- Over half (51%) agree they have dental benefits, but it’s never enough to cover their entire dental care needs

Dentistry for Everyone’s innovative model is set to disrupt Canada’s dental market anticipated to grow by 2.6% this year to reach $21.7b in revenue.
