Moncton's Tooth Fairy Program

 

Moncton’s Tooth Fairy Program is a partnership between the Moncton Dental Society and Moncton Headstart Inc. The mission is to ensure that all adults, especially those working and earning low wages, have access to essential dental services regardless of their socio-economic status.

Adults who are low or low-middle income earners and who do not have dental coverage are eligible to apply to the Tooth Fairy Program. Those seeking assistance from the Tooth Fairy Program must demonstrate their need by filling out an application form, providing proof of family income and a brief explanation of their need for the program. There is a set limit of $750 per year per adult for dental services. Essential dental services consist of the same treatments offered by the Provincial Social Assistance Dental Program. A small fee will be requested from each beneficiary to be donated to the Tooth Fairy Program.  For full and partial dentures, there is a set fee of $250 - $275.

The Tooth Fairy Program was launched in April 2011.
