CLEFT LIP AND PALATE PROGRAM
As the primary insurer, Manitoba Health covers 100% of the cost of almost all dental treatment (Certain prosthodontic procedures may have limited funding). The Manitoba Cleft Lip and Palate/Dysplasia Dental Benefit Program has made a commitment to be the payor of first resort because dental care for children with oral clefts can quickly exhaust family benefits under private insurance plans.

Available to Manitoba residents who are under the age of 18. Due to the financial investment that is made on the care for patients with oral clefts, it is a requirement under the program that patients undergo annual dental check-up examinations and maintain an acceptable level of oral hygiene in order to obtain enrolment.
