Low Income Seniors are in Pain. We Need to Fill the Gaps in Seniors Dental Care
Seniors shouldn’t have to call our offices in pain, unable to eat properly, and pleading with us to help them overcome the barriers preventing them from accessing dental care.
When the federal dental plan expands this fall there is going to be a tidal wave of patients booking appointments.
The Liberal government will leave low income seniors waiting in pain fighting to get an appointment when the federal seniors' dental program launches.
We are demanding the Liberal government have some forethought and a plan to ensure that low income seniors with the greatest need can access dental care now so they don’t have to fight to be seen by a dentist.
