Dental Program for Children
Good oral health is essential to children's overall health. The cost of dental treatment can be difficult for many families who do not have dental coverage. The Healthy Smiles Ontario (HSO) program offers free dental care. This program is for children from birth to 17 years in low-income families.
Canada Dental Benefit
The interim Canada Dental Benefit is intended to help lower dental costs for eligible families. Parents and guardians can apply if the child receiving dental care is under 12 years old and does not have access to a private dental insurance plan.
