Canada Dental Benefit

The Government of Canada has implemented the interim Canada Dental Benefit, which is designed to provide some financial support to help Canadian families access dental care.

What is the benefit?

The interim Canada Dental Benefit provides payments up to $650 per eligible child under 12 years of age, per year for two years.

  • $650 for each eligible child if the family’s adjusted net income is under $70,000.
  • $390 for each eligible child if the family’s adjusted net income is between $70,000 and $79,999.
  • $260 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 care provided by any dental care professional.
