How can you get involved?

Health care providers are adding their voices to our call for expanded public dental programs for low income adults. Check out this print and radio coverage. Share it with health providers you work with. Please help spread the message by:

  • Tweeting a link to @DrEricHoskins
  • Emailing your MPP with a link to story [if not sure who’s your MPP check http://www.ontla.on.ca/lao/en/members/]
  • Talking to Drs and Nurses you work with to ask them to echo the message with a letter to Editor of your local paper about what they see

“I see patients in severe dental pain almost every week, and I am not the only emergency doctor who does.”
