A joint venture aims at improving dental care for certain Edmonton populations.

The University of Alberta’s School of Dentistry led a fundraising campaign to expand the Boyle McCauley Health Centre Dental Clinic for low-income, immigrants and Indigenous Peoples.

The facility has moved from the health centre to the Renaissance Tower and expanded from a four- to eight-chair facility. The tower is a housing project operated by Métis Capital Housing Corp.

“There is a great need for access to affordable dental care in our community and we are very pleased that the expansion to our dental clinic has significantly increased our capacity to address this need,” said Cecilia Blasetti, executive director of Boyle McCauley Health Centre.

The expansion was done through a partnership between the school of dentistry, the Métis Nation of Alberta, Alberta Health Services and Boyle McCauley Health Centre.
