This page is for Canadians. 

If you’re in an accident or you’ve got a tooth ache that stops you in your tracks, World Nomads plans cover emergency dental expenses for Canadians traveling out of province or abroad. 

What’s covered for emergency dental treatment 

We cover emergency dental treatment to natural or permanently attached artificial teeth, including: 

  • Tooth, jaw or facial damage from an accidental blow (also includes continuing care after your return home for 180 days) 
  • Unexpected and acute emergency dental treatment or surgery 
  • Any other  emergency dental expenses for sudden and acute pain  
  • Prescription medicine following the emergency 

What’s not covered  

Travel insurance isn’t designed to cover everything — we’re not here to give your pearly whites a polish or pay for care that your dentist could do at home, including:  

  • General check-ups and cleaning 
  • Teeth straightening or whitening 
  • Damage to dentures, dental prostheses, crowns, or bridges if not permanently attached 
  • Any pre-existing dental condition 
  • Non-emergency dental treatment like replacement teeth, caps, implants that can wait until you return home  

This is not a full list of what's covered and what's not covered. For more information, check out our article on dental cover, and read your plan carefully before you buy.

FAQ

Here are our most frequently asked questions about overseas medical insurance. You can also find the answers to other questions in our Helpdesk or you can ask our customer service team. If you’re looking for general travel advice, you can ask our community at Ask a Nomad.

  • Do I pay upfront or does World Nomads?
    Prior to receiving dental treatment you need to call the emergency medical line. If you cannot you must call as soon as possible. Calling the emergency medical line will allow the medical department to arrange for direct billing through the insurance. If the dentist pushes you to pay, then you must file your claim as soon as possible.
