The Canadian Dental Care Plan

Oral health is important to Canadians’ overall health. Poor oral health can lead to respiratory disease, diabetes complications, cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, pregnancy complications, life-threatening infections, and greater mortality from all causes. It can also lead to related mental health issues, reductions in quality of life, and, in extreme cases, employment challenges, social shame, nutritional issues and isolation.

In early 2024, Aurora Gateway Dental Centre as your trusted oral health provider will be able to provide you service under this program.

New patients are always welcome. Contact our office:
