There are very few people who actually enjoy going to the dentist. But for low-income seniors who can’t afford essential dental care, going to a dentist can change their life.
“Not many people can say they’ve been uplifted by a dental appointment,” said Keddone Dias, executive director of LAMP Community Health Centre, a non-profit charitable organization that provides medical services, including a seniors’ dental health program.
“There has been overwhelming demand for the seniors dental care program since it was launched,” said Dias during a recent presentation to Peel Regional council.
