Go smile cares.....
All Canadians deserve equitable access to oral health care. We have come to recognize significant oral health disparities in our community. We seek to remove barriers and create strategies that venture outside the framework of conventional dental care settings in order to reach those unable to access care.
Oral health is a key indicator of overall health, wellbeing and quality of life. The World Health Organization defines oral health as “A state of being free from chronic mouth and facial pain, oral and throat cancer, oral infection and sores, periodontal (gum) disease, tooth decay, tooth loss, and other diseases and disorders that limit an individual’s capacity in biting, chewing, smiling, speaking, and psychosocial wellbeing.”
We are working to improve access to oral health care in our community!
