Student Discounts

GreenShield has discount arrangements with select providers across Canada. Check out the list below.


Student Dental Discount Network (SDDN)

You’ll get professional dental services and maintain your ongoing oral health with lower out-of-pocket expenses!
Here's how it works...

  1. The SDDN applies to most dental procedures - depending on a few variables, like which dentist you’re visiting or what procedure is being done - and allows you to receive a minimum of 20% off of certain services.
  2. After you get your dental treatment with a dentist in this network, our system automatically calculates the applicable discount.
  3. GreenShield pays your dentist directly so you only have to pay your share of the cost (if any) for services provided. Pretty cool, huh?
  4. The discount you receive depends on your plan design, and will be subtracted from your share of the cost. (Translation: you will be receiving a discount on the part you have to pay out-of-pocket - does it get any better?)
  5. But... (yes, there's always a 'but'), you must first be enrolled with GreenShield to be eligible for the discount.
