Access to affordable oral health care is a priority issue for AOHC. We've been doing behind the scenes advocacy work over the past year with MOHLTC, and public advocacy with the Ontario Oral Health Alliance. On April 1st, the Toronto Star ran an editorial showcasing this work.
Help us keep this story alive. Does your centre/team see first hand the challenges that low income people have accessing oral health care? Do your health practitioners have examples of the impact that poor oral health has on overall health and ability to work/participate in the community?
