A Note From the Public Health Nurse at Your School…


Dental Health Matters

Every child should have their teeth checked. Worried about the cost? Healthy Smiles Ontario can help.

Healthy Smiles Ontario is a government funded program. It covers the cost of basic dental care such as exams, x-rays, and fillings. The Healthy Smiles Ontario website has more information. www.ontario.ca/page/get-dental-care.

Your child may be eligible if:

  • The child is 17 years old or younger
  • You cannot pay to take your child to the dentist
  • You do not have any dental coverage


  • You have dental coverage but it costs too much to use

Still have questions? Contact Dental Services at the Brant County Health Unit.  We are happy to talk with you. We can support you to get help paying for your child’s visit to the dentist.

There are three ways to contact the Brant County Health Unit.
