There is an annual registration fee, and families are expected to pay a 20% parent’s contribution on treatment services, except when exempt. 

Families that have a net family income under $30,000 per year are exempt from paying the parental contribution.

Applicants need to sign a Declaration Form to verify dependents have no private dental insurance

Child needs to be registered with a private dentist or a Dental Public Health Clinic dentist. Registration fee is $15 per child or maximum of$35 per family.  Need to pay 20% of the cost of the child’s treatment, but if family net income is less than $30,000 per year, can apply to be exempt using this form:
