The number of low income Torontonians who have received emergency dental treatment through Toronto Public Health clinics has increased by nearly 60 per cent through the first six months of 2016, according to numbers released Monday.

In January, the city increased the number of TPH clinics offering free emergency dental care to social assistance recipients from five to 23 and the numbers show that the move has paid dividends.

Between January 1 and June 30 of this year a total of 768 Ontario Works recipients accessed emergency dental treatment at TPH clinics compared to 468 during the same period in 2015.
