Interesting statement from Liberal MLA David Swann this morning.
Less than 24 hours after the Dental Association came out with its dental-fee guide—-he says its time they open up advertising and price competition—or the GOVERNMENT will dictate changes to make sure prices come down.
Health Minister Sarah Hoffman has already said the 3-percent yesterday’s announcement would work out to—–wont make a difference.
Thats because dental fees in Alberta—-are DOUBLE what they are in BC and Saskatchewan.
And she says if the Association cant do better—-she’s got sharper tools.
