Chat with us, powered by LiveChat Understanding the Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDPC) - A Comprehensive Guide
As an authorized provider of the Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP), we at Apple Denture & Implant Solutions (also known as Apple Dentures) are thrilled to share a comprehensive guide to this transformative healthcare and denture care initiative. 

Our goal is to help you understand how the CDCP can make dental/denture care more accessible and affordable, and why you should consider booking a consultation with us to learn more about this plan and the benefits available to you.



What is the Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP)?

Launched by Health Canada, the CDCP aims to provide dental care coverage to approximately 9 million uninsured Canadians. It addresses a significant need in our community, as many Canadians avoid dental care due to costs. The CDCP is designed to reduce these financial barriers, ensuring more people can access essential oral health services.


Who is Eligible?

Eligibility for the CDCP is primarily determined by a lack of dental insurance and an adjusted family net income of less than $90,000. Seniors, children under 18, and individuals with a valid Disability Tax Credit are prioritized in the phased rollout that started in December 2023. It’s important to have filed a tax return in the previous year and to be a Canadian resident for tax purposes.


How to Apply?

Application to the CDCP is facilitated through Service Canada and Sun Life, with the process varying slightly depending on the applicant’s age and situation. Potential applicants may receive an invitation letter with a personalized code and instructions on applying. After applying, Sun Life provides a welcome package, coverage details, a member card, and an effective coverage start date.


What Does the CDCP Cover?

The plan covers a range of essential dental services, including denture, preventive services like cleanings, diagnostic services such as X-rays, and more complex procedures such as root canals. Some services require preauthorization, which will become effective in late 2024.


Benefits of the Canadian Dental Care Plan

The Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP) offers several key benefits to eligible Canadians, ensuring broader access to vital dental services. By joining the CDCP and booking a complimentary consultation with Apple Dentures, you gain access to:

Comprehensive Coverage: The CDCP covers various denture related services including preventive care, maintenance, repairs, and more. This reduces the need for out-of-pocket payments for essential denture care. 

Financial Relief: For those without dental insurance, the CDCP provides a financial safety net, making dental care more accessible for individuals and families whose income is below the specified threshold.

Direct Payments to Providers: As a participating provider, Apple Denture & Implant Solutions receives direct payments from Sun Life, facilitating smoother transactions without burdening patients with upfront costs.

Health Promotion: Regular dental visits funded through the CDCP can prevent severe health issues related to poor oral health, such as gum disease and its possible link to cardiovascular conditions.
