Seniors Dental Capital Program - September 1/20

The government has taken another step forward in providing dental care for Ontario low-income seniors.

Premier Ford, Minister Elliott and Minister Cho announced that the government is investing $25 million through the Seniors Dental Capital Program in 78 infrastructure projects across the province.

These projects will help to expand access to the Ontario Seniors Dental Program in underserviced areas of the province with the funding used to build new dental clinics and make upgrades and expansions to existing clinics at public health units, participating community health centres and Aboriginal Health Access Centres.

These projects are expected to be completed by March 31, 2021.
