Résultats du Sondage sur la santé dentaire des adultes et des personnes âgées de la région de Windsor-Essex : Rapport 2018

Une bonne santé dentaire est importante pour la santé et le bien-être en général. En effet, de bonnes habitudes d’hygiène dentaire et des visites régulières chez le dentiste aident à prévenir les problèmes de santé dentaire.

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)

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.
