How Can All Canadians Get Good Dental Care? New U of T Free Clinic Aims to Figure it Out

Up to 2,000 GTA families will soon be able to get free dental care at new clinic. At the same time, they’ll also be participating in research aimed at making sure every Canadian has access to dental coverage, and that such charity is no longer necessary in the future.

The clinic is the centrepiece of what’s being billed as the largest-ever dental public health service and research program, opening Tuesday at the University of Toronto.

Funded by a $6.15-million donation from Green Shield Canada, the clinic and research program will be run by the U of T Faculty of Dentistry. Along with providing cost-free dental services, the clinic will allow researchers to investigate the long-term impacts of having access to quality care.
