The Children’s Dental Program offers free basic dental and preventive services to low-income school-aged children from the Lower Mainland who are not eligible for existing government-funded programs.

Children receive dental services during the academic year at either the UBC Dental Clinic or at a satellite dental clinic at Douglas College in New Westminster.

Dental students and dental assisting students develop their knowledge and skills in the provision of paediatric dental care, and also enhance their understanding of the health needs of children with limited access to dental services.
