Dental Clinics for Seniors

Limited Ontario Seniors Dental Care Program (OSDCP) services are now available by appointment. Please call 613-966-5500 ext. 680 to make an appointment.

Note: Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the OSDCP operations, the Ontario Ministry of Health will be automatically renewing all seniors who were enrolled in the OSDCP in the first benefit year (since November 2019) to remain enrolled in the next benefit year (August 1, 2020 – July 31, 2021). These renewed clients will be mailed a new dental card, expiring July 31, 2021, regardless of any changes to their income eligibility, which might have otherwise impacted renewal for the next benefit year. For questions, please contact Ontario Ministry of Health at Toll-free 1-833-207-4435.

The Ontario Seniors Dental Care Program (OSDCP) provides high quality dental care to all seniors who qualify. Seniors are more prone to dental decay, gum disease, and oral cancer than other groups, so it is important to have regular dental checkups. Untreated dental issues can lead to more problems in the future, including chronic disease. If you are unable to afford dental care, this program may be for you.

To find out more, visit our Dental Services for Seniors page or call 613-966-5500 or 1-800-267-2803, ext. 680.
