Embracing the Canadian Dental Care Plan: Affordable Oral Health Services at Alton Dental

Good oral health is a cornerstone of overall well-being, yet for many Canadians, accessing affordable dental care remains a challenge. At Alton Dental, we understand the importance of breaking down financial barriers to oral health services, which is why we are proud to support the new Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP). This initiative aims to make dental care more accessible for eligible Canadians who do not have dental insurance. Here’s what you need to know about the CDCP and how you can utilize your benefits at Alton Dental.

Understanding the Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP)

The Canadian Dental Care Plan is designed to help ease the financial burden of dental care for Canadians who meet specific eligibility criteria. This includes individuals without access to dental insurance, those with an adjusted family net income of less than $90,000, Canadian residents for tax purposes, and those who have filed their tax return in the previous year. If you meet these requirements, you could qualify for significant coverage on a wide range of dental services provided under the CDCP.

What Services Are Covered?

The CDCP covers a variety of dental services aimed at maintaining dental health and preventing or treating oral health issues. These services include:

  • Preventive services: Scaling (cleaning), sealants, and fluoride treatments to prevent decay and gum disease.
  • Diagnostic services: Routine exams and X-rays to monitor oral health and diagnose problems early.
  • Restorative services: Fillings and crowns to restore damaged teeth.
  • Endodontic services: Root canal treatments to save infected teeth.
  • Prosthodontic services: Solutions like dentures to replace missing teeth.
  • Periodontal services: Treatment for gum disease, including deep scaling.
  • Oral surgery services: Tooth extractions and other surgical procedures.

How to Access CDCP Benefits at Alton Dental

Alton Dental is committed to supporting patients eligible for the CDCP. To access your benefits with us, you need to have received your enrollment confirmation and member card from Sun Life, which manages the CDCP on behalf of the Government of Canada. Your welcome package from Sun Life will include all the necessary details about your coverage, including the start date when you can begin using your benefits for dental services.

If you are already covered under a provincial or other government dental program, your CDCP benefits will be coordinated to ensure coverage without duplication. This ensures that all eligible Canadians receive the comprehensive care they need.

Booking Your Appointment

Alton Dental warmly welcomes all CDCP participants. When scheduling your appointment, simply inform us that you are a CDCP client. Please bring your CDCP member card and any other relevant information about your coverage to the appointment. We will take care of billing Sun Life directly for the services covered under the plan, according to the established CDCP fees.
