Dental Coverage for Children

Dependent children and children in temporary care receive mandatory basic dental coverage as outlined in the MCSS Schedule of Dental Services and Fees for Mandatory Dental Coverage. This mandatory benefit is for dependent children only. 

A dental card is automatically issued with the participant’s OW cheque, usually at the first of every month. For participants on Direct Bank Deposit, the card will be attached to the monthly income statement or payment stub.
