Jaw Dropping News

There is some big news on the horizon for people in Oxford County, thanks to the great work of the Oxford Oral Health Access Initiative, through funding from Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada.

Thanks to a $150 000 grant from Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada, the Oxford Oral Health Access Initiative will be able to operate a dental clinic at the Oxford County Community Health Centre.

The Project Manager, Jo-Anne Orton says the project will be entirely run by volunteers.  “Dentist, hygienists and assistants are coming forward saying that they value this.  They want to see this happen and they will be volunteering their time to make sure people of low income have the dental care they require.”

Access to dentistry is a struggle for many in our community.  In excess of 1500 people visited emergency departments in Oxford County for tooth pain or infection in 2015 and about 30% of people in Oxford County have not seen a dentist in over a year because of the cost.
