Canadian Dental Care Plan Can Help You!

The Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP) is a public initiative by the federal government, aimed at providing dental insurance to residents of Canada aged 65 and over who lack access to private dental insurance. This plan is a significant step towards ensuring seniors receive the necessary dental care to maintain their health and quality of life.
Coverage Details
Starting in 2024, the CDCP will cover a range of denture services through the SUNLIFE insurance company. The specifics of the coverage are as follows:
  • Complete Dentures: Coverage begins in May 2024. This includes full sets of dentures for those who need complete tooth replacement.
  • Removable Partial Dentures: Coverage starts in November 2024. This requires prior authorization and is for those needing partial tooth replacement.
