Dental Health - Community Programs

Our mission is to deliver quality preventive dental health programs to communities throughout northern BC.

We work with children, families and other health professionals to help prevent tooth decay (cavities) by providing:

  • Free oral assessments of children's teeth (does not replace regular dental office visits)
  • Education on how to care for teeth.
  • Free fluoride varnish for children at risk for tooth decay.
  • Help to families searching for a dental office.
  • Dental resources to schools and daycares
  • Participation in community health fairs and wellness projects.
     

Regular dental check-ups are important for everyone!

How do you know if your mouth is healthy if you don't know what healthy looks like? 

Your dentist and dental hygienist can help catch small problems early, before they become BIG problems
