Recent News & Updates
The Canada Dental Benefit (CDB) became law last night. This is the first stage of the government’s plan to deliver dental coverage for families without insurance and with income under $90,000, and will allow eligible children under 12 to get the dental care they need while a comprehensive national dental care program is developed.
The College is committed to innovation and new models of care that benefit patients. We have seen a number of new delivery models enter the market including technology and other emerging initiatives designed to improve practice. One of the new technologies is web-based patient and dentist matching services.
As the regulatory body for dentists in Ontario, the College looks forward to working with our federal and provincial partners and other key stakeholders to monitor the impact of this expanded access to oral health care in the province through the Canada Dental Benefit.
