Self Employed Dental Insurance Plans and Dental Coverage


SBIS is proud to be an exclusive partner to Green Shield Canada; this allows us to offer affordable and flexible Prism insurance programs nationwide – except QC. In addition, we are an independent broker, which means we sell self-employed dental insurance plans from other leading insurance providers. All of this adds up to one thing: SBIS has the experience, expertise and products to meet your individual needs.

Offered through Green Shield Canada, our Prism programs make it easy for self-employed individuals to fill in the insurance gap for services not covered by the government. There are three Prism programs available to meet your dental insurance needs: Prism Spectra®, Prism Precision® and Prism Continuum®—which guarantees coverage if you apply within 90 days of losing your group plan (for those who require prescription drugs).

Prism programs offer three levels of dental coverage for self-employed individuals and their families—Basic, Basic Comprehensive and Major Services. These options allow you to choose just the right amount of protection to ensure you and your family have the coverage you need. The more basic your requirements are, the lower your self-employed dental insurance premiums will be.

Basic Coverage is ideal if you only need preventative cleaning, routine exams and x-rays, and fillings and extractions, in addition to general anesthetics and certain services for children. Basic Comprehensive, which offers more extensive protection, provides coverage for periodontal treatment, endodontics/root canal therapy and denture-related care. If you are interested in a plan that includes the most complete level of protection, Major Services Coverage is the best choice. It offers access to dentures, standard crown restorations, orthodontics, standard bridges and standard repair or re-cementing of crowns (in your third benefit year).

Through Manulife Financial, we offer Flexcare® DentalPlus™ and add-ons that allow self-employed Canadians to choose the coverage options they need for their specific health and dental insurance needs.

We also offer the FollowMe™ line, for those who apply within 90 days of losing group coverage (for those who require prescription drugs on a maintenance basis)

Manulife Association plans that provide the following coverage options:

  • Base Dental, which provides coverage for Basic Dental Services like cleaning, routine exams, and fillings.
  • Bronze Dental, to provide a higher level of coverage than the Base Dental plan
  • Silver Dental, which offers increased coverage, but comes with lower co-payments
  • Gold Dental, which includes all of the services in the Base Dental program, but also offers coverage for more frequent recall visits and dental prostheses like orthodontia and dentures
