Healthy Smiles Ontario will be conducting free preventative dental clinics in May at the Tobermory Meeting Place. Dental staff from the Grey Bruce Health Unit will be booking free dental cleaning appointments for children and youth ages 0-17 from eligible families. The twice yearly cleanings will be held in May and October at the Tobermory Meeting Place, 20 Centennial Drive.
“As a parent of 3 children, and not always able to afford dentist appointments for them, it’s very exciting to see a program like Health Smiles available.” said Laura Campbell of Tobermory. “Until now, Wiarton was the closest location to receive a free dental cleaning from the Georgian Bay Dental Health Team. They have agreed to come to Tobermory twice a year to offer the same to our community families. They will be set up at the Meeting Place May 2 & 3, and again in October. Please take advantage of this service and book your appointment!”
To book your child’s appointment, or for more information on the program, please contact the Grey Bruce Health Unit at 519-376-9420 (press 8 for dental) or 1-800-263-3456.
