For many low-income residents in Canada access to basic dental care is not a reality. There is no universal dental coverage for those without the means to pay for oral care. The need for dental care for low-income people in the North Okanagan is great. We see individuals each day we are open that have severe dental pain and/or abscessed teeth. We do our best to help them deal with their dental infection.

Create a Smile, Change a Life

Please consider donating to our centre to help those in our community that can not afford basic dental care. Please go to our Donate tab. You will receive a tax receipt for donations over $20.
