Dental public clinics: Challenges and Successes

  1. 1. Challenges and Successes POPULATION AND PUBLIC HEALTH DENTAL CLINIC
  2. 2. History Began as Pilot project 1995 Became a Program in 1998 5 High Risk schools identified: Bishop Roborecki, Confederation Park, St Gerard, Lester B. Pearson, and St. Mark Program expanded to include all high risk schools A permanent clinic was needed and the PPH Dental clinic was born!
  3. 3. Dental Clinic Policy The Population and Public Health Dental Clinic only sees children who are experiencing poor oral health, and who have limited or no dental coverage. Paying for dental treatment must be a hardship for the family. The Population and Public Health Dental Clinic has a long waiting list. In order to see as many children as possible and restore their oral health, Population and Public Health has a policy that allows children to have a one-time full treatment plan completed. This may be 5 – 8 appointments. We will teach your family about good oral health care and nutrition, so that your child’s teeth stay healthy and future dental disease is prevented. When your child’s full treatment is complete, your child will be discharged from the clinic. Our staff will help you to link with a dentist/dental services in the community. It will be your responsibility to connect with a new dental provider.
