Dental Health Resources

As a teacher/educator, you are in a unique position to provide the education, guidance, and motivation necessary to help your students establish positive oral health habits. Resources to support the elementary school oral health curriculum can be found here.

Oral Health

Our Dental Health Department includes dentists, registered dental hygienists, dental assistants, oral health clerks, a health promotion specialist, and a program manager.  

We have a dental clinic located at our Windsor and Leamington locations.

Dental Health offers programs and services to our community including:

Community Water Fluoridation (CWF) Statement

The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit’s Board of Directors recommends that the Province of Ontario amend the regulations of the Safe Drinking Water Act to require community water fluoridation for all municipal water systems (when source-water levels are below the Health Canada recommended level of 0.7 mg/L) to prevent dental caries (tooth decay) and provide the funding and support to municipalities required.

Preventive Dental Services

Our Health Unit provides no cost preventive dental services to children and youth 17 years and under who qualify. These services are provided by a Registered Dental Hygienist. 

Your child must first be seen at a school screening or a scheduled clinic appointment at the Health Unit.
