A Message to You from the Niagara Dental Health Coalition
Posted January 16th, 2017 on Niagara At Large
Niagara, Ontario – The Niagara Dental Health Coalition has launched a survey to find out more about problems or barriers accessing dental care that are faced by Niagara region adults and seniors.
The short survey can be completed on-line at http://niagaradentalhealthcoalition.weebly.com/ and is open until March 10, 2017.
“Between two to three million people in Ontario do not visit a dentist each year,” says Lori Kleinsmith, Chair of the Niagara Dental Health Coalition. “There are many factors at play and we want to learn more about how these impact areas such as employability, health, and social interactions in Niagara.”
The survey is open to residents of all 12 Niagara municipalities and is targeted at adults 18 and over who are currently experiencing problems accessing dental care. This could include working age adults with limited or no health insurance benefits, social assistance recipients, and seniors living on low fixed incomes.
