Get The Dental Support You Need Through The CDCP

The Comprehensive Dental Care Program (CDCP) is a countrywide plan created with the intention of minimizing the financial challenges that Canadians often face while getting professional oral health care. The program provides simplified planning, personalized care plans, and improved access to services.

What Is The CDCP?

The CDCP is a government-funded plan created to provide dental coverage for many Canadians and is managed by Health Canada. Brantford Family Dental Centre has joined this program with the mission of helping improve your access to oral health support.

Which Oral Health Services Are Covered?

  • Preventative Care: Frequent cleanings, dental sealants, and fluoride services
  • Technology: Examinations and X-rays
  • Restoration: Dental fillings
  • Endodontic Services: Root canal treatments
  • Prosthodontic: Complete and partial removable dentures
  • Periodontic Treatments: Deep scaling
  • Oral Surgery: Tooth extractions

Who Qualifies For The Plan?

  • Canadian residents without access to dental insurance*
  • Patients who have filed their tax return for the previous year
  • Have an adjusted family net income of less than $90,000.
*Patients who have dental coverage through a federal, provincial, or territorial government social program can still qualify.

When Can You Apply?

  • Seniors 65+: December 2023
  • Adults with a valid Disability Tax Credit certificate: June 2024
  • Children under 18: June 2024
  • Remaining eligible Canadians: 2025

How Much Does The Plan Cover?

Patients may be required to pay a co-payment for the service depending on their adjusted family net income. Here’s how payment may work:
  • Zero Co-Payment: This applies if you have an adjustment annual family net income less than $70,000.
  • 40% Co-Payment: For patients whose adjustment yearly family net income lies between $70,000 and $79,999.
  • 60% Co-Payment: Individuals with an adjusted annual family net income between $80,000 and $89,999.
It’s important to note that CDCP fees may not be identical to what our office charges for services, which means you may need to pay an additional fee if:
  • The cost of your oral health care service is more than what the CDCP will reimburse based on their established fees.
  • You agree to have services performed that aren’t covered by the plan.

Eligible Canadians can apply at the Government of Canada website. You can also apply with the help of a trusted friend or family member.
