In November 2019, the Province of Ontario launched a new government-funded program. The new Ontario Seniors Dental Care Program covers check-ups, emergency care and dentures.
You can apply for the program if you:
- Are 65 years or older
- Are a resident of Ontario
- Have an annual net income of $19,300 or less for a single senior, or
- Have a combined annual net income of $32,300 or less for a couple, and
- Have no other form of dental benefits.
Dental services are provided through public heath units and community health centres.
