Dental Screening

A dental screening is a quick inspection of a child’s mouth by a registered dental hygienist. York Region Public Health offers dental screening in elementary schools, by appointment at one of York Region’s Public Health dental clinics, or by request at some Ontario Early Years Centres.

A dental screening will help find dental problems so children can receive the right treatment. It can also be the first step to receiving assistance for urgent dental problems through the Healthy Smiles Ontario (HSO) program, or receiving preventive dental care at one of York Region’s Public Health dental clinics.


Eligibility

All children in York Region 17 years old and under are eligible.


Booking a Screening

If your child did not have a dental screening at school, call Health Connection at 1-800-361-5653 to speak to a registered dental hygienist and make an appointment at one of York Region’s Public Health dental clinics.

If dental staff find an urgent condition, they legally have to follow up to make sure a child has been treated.

If the cost of treatment is difficult to pay, you may be eligible for the Healthy Smiles Ontario program.
