Toronto Public Health is offering a dental screening program for all interested Wexford students Tuesday, October 7. The goal of this program is to:
- Identify high school students with urgent dental needs
- Assist these students in accessing dental treatment
- Provide oral health education and information to students
The screening will be done using sterilized instruments by a registered dental hygienist employed by the City of Toronto.
Students identified as being at risk for dental diseases will be offered support and referred for appropriate care. Students who live in the City of Toronto, who do not have dental insurance and who cannot afford to pay for dental care may be eligible for services offered by Toronto Public Health.
Please be advised that this screening assessment does not replace the dental examination done by a licensed dentist.
If interested, please contact the Guidance Department for permission forms and more details.
