What dentist accepts the Healthy Smiles Program near me?
If you are a low-income family and your child is in need of necessary dental care, it might be time to learn more about the Healthy Smiles Program available in your area. The Harvest Hills Dental Care team in East Gwillimbury, Ontario, is excited to accept this program for children in their office.
What is the Healthy Smiles Program?
The Healthy Smiles Program in Canada is a federal program that helps provide dental care to children from lower-income families. The program covers basic preventive and emergency services for eligible youth 17 years of age and younger, including regular check-ups, cleanings, fillings, X-rays, and other necessary treatments.
Who is a candidate for the Healthy Smiles Program?
In order to qualify for this program, the family’s total household income must be within certain limits set by the province or territory where they live. Each province has its own specific eligibility requirements. It is important to contact your local provincial government office for more information on how to apply.
Will the Healthy Smiles Program cover cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is considered an elective procedure and is not necessary for oral health and wellness. Because of this, esthetic treatment options in our office are not covered by this type of insurance. If your child desires cosmetic dentistry or even orthodontic treatment, this will be charged as an out-of-pocket cost. They are separate from cleanings and examinations, which fall under the umbrella of coverage from the Healthy Smiles Program. If you have questions about what is and is not covered for your child’s next appointment, you can speak to the Harvest Hills Dental Care team to discuss the benefits further.
