Nunavut’s Kivalliq region will have its first private dental clinic open its doors Wednesday.

Hamza Jafri, a dentist from Winnipeg, said he opened the Northern Smile Dental Clinic in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, because he believes the community should be able to access dental services year-round.

“I had a chance to come to Rankin Inlet back in 2017. I saw the entire region — there is no private dental practice and patients just have to wait for months just to see someone, a dentist flying to the community,” Jafri said.
