About the Dental Grants Program

A Dental Grant is free to apply for and is available to any Canadian resident over the age of 18 that wishes to improve their oral health and return confidence to their smile.


To be eligible for consideration of a Dental Grant, an applicant needs to:
 

(a) attend for an examination and x-rays at a participating dental clinic in order to demonstrate that their mouth is healthy enough to support the type of cosmetic dentistry procedure they wish to receive; and,

(b) agree to pay the cost of the treatment plan that's not covered by the Dental Grant.

To determine elegibility, you will need to be examined by a participating Dental Practitioner in your area.

The Dentist will charge for the examination and x-rays, however you may eliminate the cost of the x-rays if you bring your own x-rays that were taken at least 6 months prior to your appointment.

Following completion of your examination, and assuming you are a candidate for cosmetic dentistry, the dental practitioner will provide you with a treatment plan that will help achieve your desired results.

 

Please note: The dentist will not compromise the function or health of your mouth to accommodate a cosmetic procedure. Accordingly, the dentist will advise in advance if you require any basic dentistry such as root canals, fillings, cleanings or extractions that must be completed prior to starting your cosmetic work.

If you do require any basic dentistry, and if the basic dentistry is not incidental to the cosmetic dentistry, then you must complete the needed basic dentistry in advance of beginning treatment of the Cosmetic Dentistry. In this case, all basic dentistry is the financial responsibility of the applicant.

Why Should You Apply for a Dental Grant?

It all starts with wanting to have your smile reflect the confident person you truly are. The likelihood of committing to a treatment plan that will help you achieve your personal goals and enhance your self confidence becomes more attainable with a Dental Grant.

 


Who Applies for a Cosmetic Dentistry Grant?
Cosmetic and implant dentistry has become a widely accepted way to achieve a healthy, confident smile and each year millions of North Americans from all socio-economic backgrounds share the same vision and goal of improving the appearance and function of their teeth with one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures.

 

Qualifying As a Candidate
To determine your eligibility, you will need to attend for an examination by a participating Dental Practitioner near you. Following completion of your exam, and presuming you are a good candidate for cosmetic and implant dentistry, the dental practitioner will provide you with a treatment plan that will help achieve your desired results.


 

Awarding of Dental Grants
All Grants only attribute to a partial cost of the treatment plan and applicants are financially responsible for the component of the treatment plan that is not covered by the grant.

 

Once your eligibility is confirmed, you must commit to your treatment plan within 7 days, and you must begin treatment within 30 days following.

Should an applicant begin their cosmetic dentistry work with another dentist who is not a participating member of the Dental Grants Program, then we retain the right to revoke the Grant at any time.
 

The Grant is paid directly to the dentist and the applicant must make satisfactory arrangements to pay the dentist for the remaining balance.
 

Allocations & Conditions for Funding
To be eligible for consideration of a Dental Grant, you must attend for an assessment, receive a treatment plan from a participating dentist, and agree to pay for the component of the dental work that is not covered by the Dental Grant.
