Imagine, 10 more years of suffering from dental pain and infection for people in our communities who cannot afford much needed dental treatment.
More than 2.3 million people living in Ontario – one of the most affluent places on earth - cannot afford to visit a dentist or dental hygienist. Most are low-income seniors and adults. The good news is that in 2014 the Ontario government promised to extend public dental programs to low income adults and seniors. But, not until 2025. We can do better.
