Ontario Seniors Dental Care Program
The Ontario Seniors Dental Care Program provides high-quality dental care to all eligible seniors. Seniors are more prone to tooth decay, gum disease and oral cancers than other groups, which is why regular dental checkups are so important. If paying for dental care is not within your budget, this program can help.
The CSCHN is proud to offer dental services as part of the Ontario Seniors Dental Care Program.
