At Dawson Dental Centre, we know that tooth decay is the most common, but also preventable, childhood chronic disease both in Canada and around the world. Since oral disease most frequently begins in the preschool years, it is important to establish good oral hygiene behaviors early on. In Canada, one third of people do not have dental insurance, and as a result, many go without necessary dental care because it costs too much.
Recently the Government of Canada has implemented the interim Canada Dental Benefit Program, which is designed to provide some financial support to Canadian families requiring dental care. With this benefit, which will run until 2024, families may begin addressing some of the basic dental care their young children need, while the Government continues its plans to develop a long-term Canadian dental care program.
The interim Canada Dental Benefit provides payments up to $650 per eligible child under 12 years of age, per year for two years (totaling up to $1300), for families with an adjusted net income under $90,000 per year.
To be eligible, families need to meet ALL of the following conditions for each child they apply for:
Parents can apply starting December 1, 2022, for dental care received by their eligible child back to October 1, 2022, so long as their child will still be under 12 on December 1. For the second payment, parents can apply starting July 1, 2023.
Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) My Account is the quickest, easiest, and most secure way to apply for the Canada Dental Benefit. If you do not yet have a CRA My Account, you can register at Canada.ca/my-CRA-account.
If you are unable to apply for the Canada Dental Benefit online, call 1-800-715-8836 to get your application started.
