Dental & Oral Health

Making sure your teeth and mouth stay healthy is an important part of making sure your whole body stays healthy.

If you’re 17 or younger and your family can’t afford to pay for dental care, we have programs to help.

If you have any questions about our dental programs or need help, please call our Dental Line at 1-800-265-7293 ext. 2661. 

Our oral health staff are available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about dental and oral health. We can also help you find out if you qualify for free dental care and help you enroll in these programs.

Regular check-ups and prevention

Our dental hygienists check your mouth for concerns, clean your teeth, apply fluoride and sealants, and show you how to brush and floss. We can provide information about brushing, healthy eating and other ways to keep your mouth healthy. We will also help you find out if you qualify for any other free dental programs. You can book an appointment at one of our clinics if:

  • You are 17 or under AND
  • You can’t afford dental care
