Invitation to Support Ontario Oral Health Alliance Postcard Campaign
Thousands of adults in Ontario cannot afford dental care. They experience pain and infection and have nowhere to turn but the emergency room of their local hospital. In 2008 Premier McGuinty committed to develop a dental program for all low income families.
Since then we have new dental programs for low income children – but still no programs for adults.The Ontario Oral Health Alliance wants to raise public awareness about this urgent health problem…. and build support for the Ontario government to extend provincial programs to include adults who cannot afford emergency dental services.
All the faces on the cover of this postcard are of real Ontarians who struggle to access dental care due to cost. Chantal is a young women in her twenties shown in the centre of the postcard. Click here to listen to her story.
