Because dental care is not included in the Canada Health Act, the vast majority of dental services in this country are paid for by private insurance or out-of-pocket. Taxpayers cover some 70 per cent of health care costs to the tune of about $148 billion. Only about 6 per cent of dental care costs, about $800 million, are paid for with public funds. According to 2011 data from the Canadian Institute for Health Information: 59 per cent of private dental care expenditures, about $6.6 billion, were paid for by insurance. the remaining 41 per cent, some $4.6 billion, was paid by patients out-of-pocket.
