Healthy Smiles Ontario
Healthy Smiles Ontario is a new, no cost dental program for children 17 and under who do not have access to any dental coverage and who meet the program’s eligibility requirements.
The program covers regular visits to a licensed dental care provider, such as a dentist or dental hygienist, to establish and maintain good oral health. It covers a full range of dental services including check-ups, cleaning, fillings, x-rays, scaling and more.
It does not cover cosmetic dentistry (such as teeth whitening), orthodontics (such as braces) or urgent/emergency dental services. However, an urgent or emergency oral health issue for kids 17 and under may be covered through the Children In Need of Treatment (CINOT) program offered by the health unit.
We are pleased to offer a new full service clinic that is now open in Barrie as well as a mobile clinic that visits local communities throughout the year. For appointment information call 705-721-7520 or 1-877-721-7520. See the mobile clinic schedule here.
Children 17 and under may be eligible if:
- they are residents of Ontario;
- they are members of a household with an Adjusted Family Net Income of $20,000 per year or below; and,
- they do not have access to any form of dental coverage (including other government-funded programs, like Ontario Works).
