FUNDY DENTAL CENTRE COMMUNITY PROJECT
The Fundy Dental Centre Community Project is a new program in the Annapolis Valley developed to help patients in need gain control of their dental health. Local dentists will provide basic dental services at a significantly reduced cost to eligible patients that are motivated to change their current oral condition.
Who is eligible for the FDCP Program?
Patients are selected based on a number of criteria (motivation, dental need and financial constraints). A detailed application form must be submitted in full to Fundy Dental Centre. The Federal Low Income Levels are used to confirm true financial need, but patients must also have significant dental disease to be eligible for this program. click here for more info
If Accepted into FDCP, what next?
Patients that are accepted into the FDCP program will have a treatment plan developed to restore their mouth to a healthy condition. Appointments will be scheduled as in a typical dental practice setting; however, the cost of treatment will be based on a nominal fee per hour of dental service. Patients will be educated on how their dental health became an issue and will be shown how to maintain their healthy mouth for the future.
Patients have one year to complete this treatment, and will be dismissed from the program once the presenting problems have been corrected. Subsequent dental treatment is the responsibility of the patient in a general practice setting.
