It was created to provide general Canada Child Benefits information only.

Your Canada Dental Benefit payments are tax-free and will vary based on your family income. Parents and guardians with children who meet the eligibility criteria may apply for this benefit.

The CRA determines your benefit amount based on your adjusted family net income. The benefit amount for each eligible child will not change based on your dental costs.

Use your adjusted family net income from:

  • 2021 for dental care received between October 1, 2022 and June 30, 2023
  • 2022 for dental care received between July 1, 2023 and June 30, 2024

Benefit amounts per eligible child

Adjusted family net income Full custody amount Shared custody amount
less than $70,000 $650 $325
$70,000 to $79,999 $390 $195
$80,000 to $89,999 $260 $130
$90,000 or more not eligible not eligible

If you’re still unsure or do not know your adjusted family net income, please use the benefit estimator provided by CRA.

If dental costs are more than $650

If you only apply for one benefit period and your child’s dental costs are over $650 in that period, you may meet the criteria for the additional payment.

How many payments you can get

For this benefit, you may apply for a maximum of 2 payments for each eligible child. If you have more than one eligible child, you can apply for all of them at the same time or separately.

During the first benefit period

From December 1, 2022 to June 30, 2023, you could only apply for one payment for each eligible child who received dental care between October 1, 2022 and June 30, 2023.

During the second benefit period

You can apply for one or two payments for each eligible child depending on your situation.

If you received a payment for a child in the first benefit period, that child will only be eligible for one more payment.
