Good oral health plays an important role in our overall health.

Children and Teens

The Health Unit offers the following free preventive oral (dental) health services for eligible children and teens up to 17 years of age:

  • Fluoride varnish applications
  • Sealants
  • Scaling

PLEASE NOTE: Dental Screening for students during the 2020/21 school year has been postponed until further notice. If your child has a toothache or cavity AND you are unable to pay for dental treatment, the Healthy Smiles Ontario (HSO) program may be able to help pay for dental care costs.


The new Ontario Seniors Dental Care Program (OSDCP) is a publicly-funded program geared to low-income seniors who do not have private dental coverage.
