Introduction to the Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP)

Introduction. The Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP) is a federal government initiative introduced in 2022 to provide dental coverage for Canadian residents without existing dental benefits and with a household income below $90,000 per year. The program is set to commence dental care services in May 2024. It is crucial to note that the CDCP might not be 100% free for you; rather, it operates on a co-payment system based on the adjusted family net income. Services covered under the CDCP include preventive services, diagnostic services, restorative services, endodontic services, prosthodontic services, periodontal services, and oral surgery services. However, specific details of the coverage are yet to be disclosed by Health Canada. To access the CDCP, eligible seniors will receive invitation letters based on age groups starting from December 2023, with an online application portal available in May 2024. The program aims to fill gaps in dental coverage for individuals not covered by workpl
