Who Are We

About the Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP)

At Clinton Dental, we will start accepting CDCP on July 9, 2024, for those who are eligible.​ Here is what you need to know:

It is not a free dental program

Depending on your adjusted family net income, you will have to make a co-payment of up to 60% of the treatment cost.

Only some treatments are covered

Before you start any treatment, you should understand your dental care costs. You will have to pay costs the CDCP does not cover. In general, the CDCP will only cover a portion of basic procedures.

It does not cover everyone

To be eligible for the CDCP, you must meet ALL of the following criteria:

  • you don't currently have access to dental insurance

  • your adjusted family net income is less than $90,000

  • you are a Canadian resident for tax purposes

  • you filed your tax return for the previous year

To be covered, you must fist apply

Your coverage under CDCP is not automatic, you must apply before you visit your dentist.

Your dentist is not responsible for knowing your eligibility

If you qualify for this program, please be aware of the limitations of your coverage and operate within them. We do not have the ability to monitor every individual’s coverage under CDCP, nor their reimbursement eligibility. As a patient covered by this plan, you will have access to the details of your coverage and the level of reimbursement for which you are eligible. Please know your coverage as you will be responsible for any fees not covered by your plan.

We appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate this new government program.
 

Should you have concerns about the CDCP, please contact Ben Lobb your local Member of Parliament, as this is a federally regulated program.
