A new, state-of-the-art satellite dental clinic operated by the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Dentistry is helping students gain critical skills while providing lower-cost care for patients.
“These rooms are large and beauitfully coloured,” said Catherine Crowe, an artist who had a cavity filled at the clinic at 777 Bay St. in one of its 41 enclosed operatories.
U of T’s Faculty of Dentistry, the first and largest of its kind in Canada, operates two clinics where third- and fourth-year doctor of dental surgery students see 15,000 patients each year under the supervision of a licensed dentist – typically at just 30 per cent of the cost charged in private practices.
