Nunavut Is Feeling the Troubling Absence of Permanent Dental Services

People in Arviat, Nunavut, are finally able to see a dentist, after equipment issues resulted in a painful break in service.

A dentist typically visits the community every month, but the July and August trips were postponed due to a broken dental chair.

“When the dentists are here the lineup to see them is out the door,” said Arviat’s mayor, Bob Leonard.

“The level of service is already so low, that people… can’t even see the dentist sometimes when they are here.”
