Oral health professionals play a vital role in delivering oral health care, and the Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP) will allow more Canadian residents to benefit from their care.

CDCP established fees

Oral health providers will be compensated according to the CDCP established fees for each service covered under the plan. CDCP fees may differ from those set out in provincial and territorial suggested fee guides, that providers often use to charge for oral health services.
