How to Apply

To apply to the Alberta Health Services Dental Clinic (for reduced-fee dental care for families in financial need) you will need:

  1. Public Health Dental Income Assessment Form
  2. A form to confirm that you don't have a dental plan
  3. Evidence of income by providing the clinic with your Notice of Assessment from Revenue Canada. The Notice of Assessment is the letter they send confirming your income tax information. If you do not have your Notice of Assessment, you can phone 1-800-959-8281 and request that an Option C print out be sent to you.
  4. If you are experiencing financial difficulties and your income for the latest tax year was above our low-income cutoff, fill out the Temporary Eligibility Assessment for Reduced Fee Dental Care.

What health information is needed by the dentist?

Oral health affects nutrition, speech, growth, development, ability to learn and self esteem. Oral health contributes to overall health and quality of life. It is part of mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.
