Reserve Dental Care Plan (RDCP)


As a part of the Reserve Health Benefit Plan, some Reserve Force members and their dependants are eligible to participate in the RDCP. The RDCP provides coverage for specific services and supplies that are not covered under a provincial health or dental care plan.


Serving Reserve Force Class A and Class B members may participate in the RDCP to cover themselves and/or obtain coverage for eligible dependants (depending upon Class and length of service).

A survivor may opt for coverage under the Pensioner's Dental Services Plan (PDSP) if he/she is entitled to an ongoing survivor benefit under the Canadian Forces Superannuation Act (CFSA).


A member who is enrolled in the Primary Reserve, who is not covered by any other dental plan or programme and is in good standing with the Unit, may request and be assigned a reserve dental plan certificate number and will be covered by the plan.

The Plan covers only reasonable and customary dental treatment, necessary to prevent or correct dental disease or defect, provided the treatment is consistent with generally accepted dental practices.


For more information on the RDCP, contact the unit Orderly Room.
