Free Dental Care
Good oral health is important for overall health. Yet, for some, regular dental care may not be affordable.
You may be eligible for free dental services in our Toronto Public Health clinics. We offer dental services to eligible children and youth (0-17 years), adults enrolled in selected Toronto Public Health programs, and seniors (65 years and older). Eligibility varies by clinic. For more information, please contact one of our clinics to determine if you are eligible.
If you have private insurance, search for a dentist through the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario.
If you are not eligible for free services, and you do not have private insurance, you may qualify for dental care at a low-cost dental facility.
What services are available?
We offer basic dental services including:
- Some root canal treatments
- Emergency and urgent dental care to treat issues like dental pain or cavities
- Full or partial dentures are also covered but clients are asked to pay the full laboratory cost for dentures or denture repair.
How do I know if I am eligible?
If you live in Toronto and cannot afford to pay for a dentist, contact one of our dental clinics near you. Our staff speak many languages and are happy to help you. Assessments for eligibility must be done at a Toronto Public Health dental clinic.
How do I book an appointment?
Contact one of our dental clinics near you. Our staff speak many languages and will help determine if you are eligible for service. You must come into a Toronto Public Health clinic in person to be assessed. You will be required to bring documentation to determine eligibility. The type of documentation required to prove eligibility varies depending on your situation, so please always call first.
If you are not eligible for free services, and do not have private insurance, you may qualify for dental care at a low-cost dental facility.
