Program Rules & Regulations
Effective as of March 1st, 2021
How to Apply for Eligibility:
Visit www.dentalgrants.org and apply for consideration of a Dental Grant.
Schedule and complete an examination with a participating dental practitioner.
All candidates must have completed an application form. No incomplete or forged applications will be accepted.
Applicants must apply and be accepted into the program prior to the commencement of any dentistry treatment. Acceptance, when given, is provided by email at the time the examination is scheduled.
Any applicant that is actively and currently engaged in any phase of reconstructive dentistry e.g.:, bone augmentation, placement of implants and/or the prosthetic (finishing) phase of implants (placement of crowns, bridges and or implant supported dentures) may not qualify for consideration of a Dental Grant.
Applicants may not apply for funding for the purpose of settling prior payments made, or existing payments due, for any dentistry treatment that has already been completed or is about to be completed.
Applicants must be conditionally approved for the Grant before attending at the dental office. Conditional approval is confirmed by email at the time your examination is scheduled.
Examination & X-rays:
Applicants must pay the dentist for the cost of their examination and x-rays, which usually costs between $100 and $366, depending on the complexity of your case.
Upon booking an examination, the applicant must provide 48 hours advance notice if they are unable to keep their appointment.
Selection of Program Candidates:
Applicants will be notified by email and regular mail of their acceptance and the terms and conditions for qualifying for their grant award.
Dental Grants are awarded by each participating dentist on a tiered basis, at the sole discretion of the Organization, to any qualified applicant. The Grant only applies to the dentist's professional fees associated with the treatment plan that was presented by a participating dentist of this program.
Tiered Grant percentages can be viewed here.
The Dental Grants Program is open to all individuals that are ages 18 and over as of their application date.
Minors are eligible with the consent of their parent or legal guardians, however the application should be in the name of the parent or guardian.
Participating dentists endeavor to provide you with fair rates based on their provincial rate guides and will not arbitrarily increase their fees in order to off-set the absorption of the Grant.
Accordingly, if you wish to verify the validity of the Grant's true cost savings, you may provide competing quotes from at least 3 independent dentists from the same city that are quoting their usual rates for the same treatment based on your x-rays. You can then combine the average of all 3 quotes, apply the Grant, and receive those same services at the reduced cost from any participating dentist.
This ensures that your dental savings are unequivocally lower than any other competing quote.
Competing Dental office Quote 1: $10,350.00
Competing Dental office Quote 2: $9,779.00
Competing Dental office Quote 3: $10,125.00
Average of all 3 quotes: ($10,350 + $9,779.00 + $10,125 = $30,254) / 3 = $10,084.67.
$10,084.67 less the Grant @ 25%: $10,084.67 - $2,521.16 = $7,563.51
In the example given, you would pay $7,563.51 and complete the dental work at any participating dentist.
Please note: There is no obligation for you to obtain 3 quotes prior to attending for an exam at a participating dentist. This example is provided as our commitment to demonstrate that the Grant savings offered by participating dentists are genuine and actual.
Verification of Grant Recipient:
Applicants must show a valid piece of identification when requested.
Dental Office Participation:
We will always endeavor to refer you to a dental office that is local to you, and that participates in our program. However, from time to time we may attempt to accommodate certain applicants that live in areas that are not serviced by a participating dentist. On those occasions, we will use our best efforts to secure a local dentist that is willing to provide the Grant on your behalf. In the event we are unable to secure a local dentist to provide the Grant, we may need to refer you to an alternative dentist, and/or temporarily defer your application until such time that a local dentist can be secured.
