Dr. H. S. Bedi and Lakeridge Dental Centre are pleased to announce that we will be participating in the Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP).

The CDCP aims to help support some of the cost of various oral health care services and reduce financial barriers to accessing care for eligible Canadian residents who do not have access to private dental benefits.

Some of the services covered under the CDCP will require pre-authorization before the treatment will be granted coverage. Services requiring pre-authorization will become available in November 2024.

The CDCP will only pay for oral health services covered within the plan at the established CDCP fees. These fees ARE NOT the same as the provincial oral health association’s suggested fee guides that providers use to charge for oral health services.

The CDCP will reimburse a percentage of the cost, based on established CDCP fees and your adjusted family net income. The percentages paid by the patient are called co-payments. The co-payments are the percentage of the treatment fee that is NOT covered under the CDCP. Co-payments will be paid by the patient directly to the oral heath care provider at the time of treatment.

More information on what the co-payments may look like for individuals can be found on the Government of Canada website.
