CDA Welcomes Federal Government’s Changes to the CDCP

by adminjay

The Canadian Dental Association (CDA) recently showed their support for the federal government’s changes to the Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP).

The CDA and the provincial/territorial associations have voiced their concerns about the CDCP and advocated for changes to be made since it’s announcement. Now that more details about the program have been shared and the number of treatments that are covered has improved, the CDA is recognizing the government’s efforts to improve the experience for participating oral health providers and patients alike.

“CDA is encouraged to see that the federal government has worked on and heard some of our immediate concerns regarding CDCP,” says Dr. Joel Antel, CDA President. “While acknowledging the progress made so far, no public plan is perfect and there is still work to be done in the medium to long term to benefit Canadians over time. CDA will continue advocating for these changes and looks forward to working in partnership with the federal government.”

The CDA believes the largest area for improvement is the government’s communication with the public regarding CDCP. They recently launched a public education program to help Canadians understand all of the terms and conditions of the program.
