Thrown some curveballs by the pandemic, the city’s first dental clinic for low-income Londoners is on track to open by year’s end, the project’s leader says.

Demolition work for the planned dental office on the second floor of the Glen Cairn Community Resource Centre got underway Monday, a $700,000 project that will offer about 4,000 appointments a year to low-income patients.

“We’re more or less all set to go, we just have to do some refining of the drawings with the architect,” said project organizer Ken Wright, a dentist and adjunct professor at Western University’s Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry. “We’re looking at November for the opening.”
