The federal government recently announced the launch of a new dental care program for low-income Canadians. The Faculty’s dental public health experts agree it is good news for Canadians and for our oral health care system.
“It’s a long time coming,” says professor Carlos Quiñonez, who is also the director of the graduate specialty program in Dental Public Health. “Myself and my colleagues in research and public policy have been advocating for improvements to access to dental care for those individuals who are currently missed in our system.”
