Canada Dental Benefit

What is the Canada Dental Benefit?

The Canada Dental Benefit would provide payments up to $650 per child per year for two years for families with adjusted net income under $90,000 per year and without dental coverage.

  • $650 would be provided for each eligible child if the family’s adjusted net income is under $70,000
  • $390 would be provided for each eligible child if the family’s adjusted net income is between $70,000 and $79,999
  • $260 would be provided for each eligible child if the family’s adjusted net income is between $80,000 and $89,999

The benefit can be used for any dental treatment provided by Buswell Dental Centre.

  • Have a child under 12 years of age, who does not have access to private dental care coverage
  • Have an adjusted family net income under $90,000 per year
  • Have filed last year tax return
  • Receive the Canada Child Benefit for each eligible child
  • Have or will have dental care expenses for each eligible child that have not been fully reimbursed under another federal, provincial or territorial government program
