Children 17 years of age or younger can access free dental screening at a health unit office by appointment.

The Healthy Smiles Ontario program provides free cleanings, fluoride applications and sealants for eligible children. Children need to be screened at school or a health unit office by one of our Registered Dental Hygienists to see if they would benefit from these services. If they do, you will receive a form to confirm eligibility and enroll your child. There is also a consent and health history form to complete. 

Clinics are held at selected area schools. If we cannot see your child at a school you will be offered an appointment at a health unit office.
