BC Healthy Kids and other government assisted dental plans
Dr. Kumudu Suriya, DMD
Government assisted dental plans may not be the solution to all your dental needs, but they can be helpful.
The best known Canadian federal government plans are related to refugees (1-888-242-2100), veterans (1-866-522-2122) and First Nations (1-855-618-6291).
The BC Employment and Assistance Program provides basic dental services to income assistance clients who are least likely to become financially independent.  These programs are known as Persons with Disabilities and Persons with Persistent Multiple Barriers.  Their dependent children, under age 19 are eligible for basic dental coverage.  These are commonly known as Ministry Dental Insurance plans (1-866-866-0800).
BC Healthy Kids plan (1-866-866-0800) also provides some dental coverage for children who have been approved for BC Medical Services Plan (MSP) premium assistance.  You may qualify for BC Healthy Kids plan prescription eyeglasses too.
In addition to these assistance plans, some colleges and universities have dental coverage for their students.
Before calling a dentist, call all appropriate numbers to obtain relevant information as applicable to your situation.  Having information ready will help you and the dentist.
