Good oral health is important to kids’ overall health. Yet, for some, dental care may not be affordable. The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care offers a program through Ontario Health Units that provides dental care free-of-charge to children in low-income families. To find out if your child is eligible for the Healthy Smiles Ontario program, click on the links below or call the Eastern Ontario Health Unit at 613-933-1375 or 1 800 267-7120 and ask for Health Line.

Healthy Smiles Ontario is a program for kids 17 and under. If eligible, your kids will get regular dental services at no cost to you.
