Government Dental Programs

In Canada, general oral health care is not included in the Canada Health Act (CHA).  Most Canadians receive oral health care through privately operated dental clinics and pay for services through insurance or by paying for it themselves. Some dental services are covered through government dental programs. These programs are integral to the health and well-being of Canadians. Below is a list of federal and provincial government dental programs.
