Going to the dentist is too expensive for many Canadians. A report from the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences found that nearly 20% of Canadians have avoided going to the dentist because of the costs and that 95% of dental care is paid out-of-pocket or through private dental insurance.
Dr. Robert Schroth explains why your dentist bill is so hefty and how we can help all Canadians have access to proper dental care.
Dr. Schroth is an Associate Professor & Clinician-Scientist in the Department of Preventive Dental Science (Faculty of Dentistry) and the Department of Pediatrics & Child Health (Faculty of Medicine) at the University of Manitoba and a member of the Manitoba Institute of Child Health.
