Manchester Rd Dental Surgery is proud to offer our services to those who hold a valid Department of Veteran’s Affairs (DVA) Health Card. As approved providers for dental treatment under the DVA, this program allows us to provide treatment at no out-of-pocket expense, to eligible clients covering:

  • preventive treatment such as examinations and cleaning
  • simple treatment such as fillings and extractions
  • complex treatment such as crowns, bridges, implants and dentures

Program eligibility is based on Veteran Card type:

Gold Card holders are entitled for treatment of all dental conditions

White Card holders are only eligible for treatment of their accepted dental condition or the dental consequences of cancer treatment.
