Dental clinic programsSome universities and colleges have dental clinic programs for the community.
Trained dentists supervise the dental students who provide the service. The service is not free, but it costs less than going to a dentist.
The Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) does not pay for most dental services.
OHIP will pay only if the patient’s life is in danger and if hospital treatment is required.
In most cities in Ontario, the local Community or Public Health Department offers some free dental services. However, these services are only available to some people, such as eligible seniors and children. Contact your local Community or Public Health Department to learn what services are available in your community.
