NB Please check back. This program is currently on hold as a result of COVID-19.
Launched in April 2011, Moncton’s Tooth Fairy Program is a partnership between the Moncton Dental Society and Moncton Headstart. The mission is to ensure that all adults – especially those working and earning low wages – have access to essential dental services.
Low or low-middle income adults, 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. A small fee for service is requested from each beneficiary to be donated to the Tooth Fairy Program.
Please note: Children from low income families may be eligible for the provincial Healthy Smiles Clear Vision program, which covers basic dental care. For more information, please follow this link.
