How the Program Works
Step 1: Submit an Application
Start by submitting an application using the enrollment form on the right side of any page of this website, or call 1-855-313-2153 Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
It's free to enroll and takes just a few minutes.
Once you submit your application, a representative will confirm your details and review certain information with you such as:
Your dental history.
What kind of dental work you want done.
How soon you wish to start treatment.
We will also provide you with a program orientation and answer any questions you may have.
Step 2: Exam & X-Rays by a Dentist
Once your information is confirmed, an appointment will be made for you to attend at a participating dental office near you for an exam and x-rays.
Please Note: The Dentist will charge approximately $100 - $350 for your exam and x-rays.
Following completion of your exam and x-rays, the dentist will provide you with a treatment plan in writing that sets out a clear path for achieving the desired outcome you are seeking to improve your smile.
Your Grant amount will be awarded as a percentage of your treatment plan. (See the Grant Payment Guide)
Higher cost treatment plans are awarded a higher Grant percentage, providing more incentive to people that require more dental work.
For example, if your treatment plan is $5,000, then your grant would be $1,175. (23.5% of $5,000)
However if your treatment plan is $16,000, then your Grant would be $4,320. (27% of $16,000.

Grant Payment Guide
If the amount of the Treatment plan and Dental Grant is acceptable to you, you can start receiving treatment right away.
DO NOT BEGIN YOUR DENTAL WORK UNTIL WE HAVE CONFIRMED THE EXACT AMOUNT OF YOUR DENTAL GRANT.
The Dental Grant is paid to the dental office and is applied toward your treatment plan thereby reducing its overall cost.
You will be financially responsible for the remaining portion of your treatment plan that is owing after the Dental Grant is deducted.
You may be asked to demonstrate that you are able to pay for the portion of your dental work not covered by the Grant.
Following your examination, you must notify the Program Consultant if you wish to accept treatment. Failure to start treatment may result in the forfeiture or indefinite delay of your Grant.
If you accept treatment, the dentist will require a deposit and you may book your initial appointment to begin treatment.
The Dental Grant can only be used at a participating dentist.
Most Common Questions Asked After Reading this Page:
How long will the exam and x-rays take?
Exams typically take about 1 hour to complete.
How soon will I learn how much the Grant will be?
The exact amount of your Grant will be calculated for you once you have completed your exam and the dentist has provided you with your treatment plan.
For an estimate of your Grant amount, please refer to the Grant Payment Guide.
What if the grant doesn’t cover enough to make it affordable for me?
If the Dental Grant is not sufficient enough to make your procedure affordable, you can inquire about third-party financial companies that specialize in personal loans for dental work. Third party financial companies typically charge higher rates of interest on their loans and require you to demonstrate income as well as a good credit rating.
How soon until I can begin treatment?
Once you are satisfied with the cost of the treatment plan and the amount of your Grant, you can accept treatment and begin right away.
Can I get Competing Quotes from other Dentists?
Yes, of course.
Even though most dentists charge similar rates for the same kind of dental work, your best interests come first so we will do our best to make sure your Grant gets applied toward a treatment plan from a participating dentist that is the same cost or lower than any other quote you receive, provided the quote is based on the same kind of dental work being performed.
How can I pay the dentist for the part of the treatment not covered by the grant?
You may pay the dentist for your portion of the treatment using any usual method of payment such as credit card, debit card, or cash.
You may also qualify for funding from a third-party finance company or use private insurance from your (or your spouse's) place of employment.
You may NOT be able to use government sponsored forms of payment such as OHIP or ODSP.
