Healthy Smiles Program Expanding

Lambton County children should have whiter smiles thanks to an increase in Healthy Smiles Ontario eligibility.

Health Promoter Matt Joosse says the program is available for families who don’t have dental insurance and meet the new income requirements.

The coverage is available for children 17 years of age or younger who qualify.

The increased income qualification level is expected to provide publicly-funded dental services to an estimated 70,000 additional children and youth in Ontario.
