Dental Screening Clinics
A dental screening is a visual check of your child’s mouth by one of our Health Unit dental hygienists. It doesn't replace a regular dental exam with your family dentist. Regular and early dental care is important to maintain dental and overall health. If you don't have a family dentist and you cannot afford dental care, your child may benefit from one of our dental screenings.
Dental screening clinics are offered to children and youth 17 years of age and under who have financial hardship. Screenings are needed to determine eligibility for Healthy Smiles Ontario.
Our dental screenings are provided by appointment only. Please do not arrive late for your appointment or we may not be able to see your child.
What do I need to bring to my child's dental screening appointment?
- A parent or guardian must attend unless your child lives independently.
- Your child's valid Ontario Health Card.
- Any medications your child is taking and any important medical information.
- An interpreter must attend if you cannot speak or understand English.
