What’s a dental public health clinic, and how can one help with my oral health care?

ANSWER

Dental public health clinics promote dental health through community efforts. The clinics aim to educate the public. They use group dental care programs to help prevent and control dental diseases across a community. The clinics can help:

  • Find you a dentist
  • Get dental care programs for schools
  • Provide information on fluoridation in the community
  • Answer common questions about oral health
  • Provide other oral health resources and support materials to their community
