Oral Health


Preventive services are offered to children identified through the Dental Screening program. Preventive clinics are held in our Whitby Clinic as well as some area schools.

The following services are provided to help improve oral health and prevent dental disease:

  • Cleaning (scaling & polishing) of teeth
  • Oral hygiene instruction
  • Topical fluoride applications
  • Sealants (plastic coatings on the chewing surfaces of molars).

Services are available on an appointment basis and are provided free of charge if families do not have insurance or dental coverage, and the cost of treatment would create a financial hardship. Parental consent and a medical history are required.
