About the Dental Grants Program

The Dental Grants Program is a gift-giving program operated in combination with participating dentists.

It starts with us providing each participating dentist with patient-focused services such as:
 

  • Patient intake & screening

  • Patient Scheduling

  • Appointment Confirmations

  • Appointment Reminders

  • Treatment plan education

  • Payment guarantee of patient's fees

  • Pre-financing qualification, and

  • Patient Advocacy


The dentist saves substantive costs by not requiring their own staff to perform these services. Those cost savings are then passed along to Grant applicants in the form of a 25-30% up-front reduction in the cost of the dentist's professional fees, on a one-time basis.

Participating dentists may also contribute a flat fee to the Dental Grants Program for each candidate to cover other costs like advertising.​

 

If/when the dentist pays fees to us, it is irrespective of patient outcomes.

A Dental Grant is free to apply for and is available to any 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) apply online at www.dentalgrants.org; and,
 

(b) attend for an examination and x-rays at a participating dental clinic for assessment and diagnosis; and,

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

The Dentist will charge for the examination and x-rays on your first visit, 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.

The treatment plan will be carefully reviewed by your Patient Advocate who will advise how much your Grant covers and what your options are.

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 the dentist's professional fees and applicants are financially responsible for the components of the treatment plan that are not covered by the Grant.

 

Once your Grant and treatment plan is confirmed, you must commit to your treatment plan within 30 days, and you must begin treatment within 60 days following.

Should an applicant begin their cosmetic dentistry work with a dentist who is not a participating member of the Dental Grants Program, then the Grant cannot be deducted from the cost of the treatment plan, or provided in any way.
 

The Grant is deducted directly from the cost of your treatment plan and the applicant must make satisfactory arrangements to pay for the remaining balance.
 

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