Awarding of Cosmetic Dentistry Grants
Partial Grants are awarded to any qualified
applicant on a per capita, percentile basis, distributed proportionally based on the number of applicants in the distribution pool, the value of their recommended treatment plan, and the amount of proceeds available for distribution.
Once becoming eligible for a partial grant, applicant's must proceed with their cosmetic dentistry work with the dentist they were assigned to, or another participating dentist in the program. Should an applicant begin their cosmetic dentistry work with another dentist who is not a participating member of the CDG program, then CDG retains the right to revoke the partial grant from the applicant at any time.
Notification of awarding of a partial grant will be 30 to 60 days following an applicant's completion of all basic dentistry and becoming recommended for inclusion in the grant program. Once acknowledgement and acceptance of the grant is received within the 30 day acceptance period, applicants are entitled to initiate their treatment immediately with their participating CDG dentist. Each applicant must submit a signed affidavit and thank you letter to the CDG office in order to confirm acceptance.
Payment of an applicant's partial grant is made directly to the dental office and not to the applicant. It is the responsibility of the dental office to reimburse the patient for any money he or she has put forth towards their cosmetic dentistry work.
