Ontario’s dentists provide dental care to more than 200,000 children through the Healthy Smiles Ontario program.

That’s a lot of smiles, but there is more to do and a chronic lack of funding has held us back.

We’re committed to doing our part and are ready to work with the Government of Ontario to help make sure that every child gets the care they need. 

Ontario's dentists believe in the power of smiles. 

What is the Healthy Smiles Ontario program?

  • It’s a dental program for children and youth 17 and under from low-income families that covers regular dental visits.
  • The program covers dental services like check-ups, cleanings, fillings and X-rays, including urgent or emergency dental health issues.
  Ontario's dentists are committed.

Since the start of the program, Ontario’s dentists have:
  • Given regular check-ups, preventative care and treatment for eligible children and youth at no cost to their families.
  • Helped design and improve Healthy Smiles Ontario, resulting in a better program that serves more children.
  • Improved the quality of life for Ontario’s children by treating and preventing dental health problems so they can eat, sleep and concentrate in school.
  • Given hundreds of thousands of children a reason to smile.
  • Invested in the health and happiness of our children and in Ontario’s future.
