All three of Ontario’s main parties are promising to provide dental care to more people should they form government after the election, but the president of the Ontario Dental Association (ODA) said the province should fix its existing dental programs before launching any new dental care initiatives.
PC Leader Doug Ford said his party will pump $90 million dollars into dental. That’s in addition to a free dental care program for low-income seniors that his government introduced.
Liberal Leader Steven Del Duca said dental care is part of his party’s proposal to offer “portable benefits” to people who don’t have coverage through their jobs.
