At Agape Dental Clinic Mill Woods, we accept Health Benefits Card which people eligible for Income Support, the Alberta Adult Health Benefit, and the Alberta Child Health Benefit receive through Alberta Works. Alberta Health Benefits Card (Health Benefits) provides coverage for themselves and/or their dependants unless they receive coverage through the Government of Canada.
Dental Care is one of the health benefits of that program.
