A team of Montreal dental hygienists organized a pop-up clinic Saturday to provide care for people without easy access to services.
The all-day event was held at Halte-Transition, a warming shelter in Pierrefonds-Roxboro – practitioners say it’s all thanks to a change in Quebec law, allowing hygienists to offer services independently.
On Saturday, residents could access care in French and English, of course, but also Urdu, Spanish, and Punjabi.
