Alberta Blue Cross routinely requires diagnostic records for the following dental services:

  • Anterior crowns and veneers—anterior teeth are considered to be from the first incisor up to and including the first bicuspid in each quadrant (teeth one to four).
  • Inlays and onlays—all teeth.
  • Implants—all teeth.
  • Double pontics and retainers (where the procedure is being performed on consecutive teeth).

Alberta Blue Cross is here to help with electronic submissions. If your office experiences any difficulties with electronic submissions, there is a dedicated resource that will work with you to resolve any issues. This service is free to all dental providers. Please contact David Roethlingshoefer by email at or call 780-498-8214, if you require assistance.
