You’ve heard it before, and you’ll hear it again: you have to take care of your teeth and see your dentist.

But, if you don’t have dental coverage, an appointment to see the dentist can get pretty expensive.

So, Ontario has made it easier for families to send their children to the dentist.

The Healthy Smiles Ontario program now has about 85,000 Toronto children and youth enrolled, and approximately 320,000 across the province, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care said. It is available to children aged 17 and under in Ontario from low-income families or those receiving social assistance.
