D-4, r. 6 - Code of Ethics of the Ordre des denturologistes du Québec

Full text
53. A denturologist shall give the patient an estimate of the cost of the professional services before beginning the treatment. The denturologist shall refrain from receiving or requesting from his patient, patient’s creditor or a third party, full advance payment of professional fees for services not provided. The denturologist may, however, receive or request reasonable advance fees for professional services.
A denturologist who practises within a partnership or joint-stock company shall ensure that the fees are always indicated separately on every invoice or statement of fees sent by the partnership or joint-stock company to the client.
If a treatment plan agreed upon must be modified, the denturologist shall without delay inform the patient of the additional fees that the modification will entail.
