Bus Closures

To ensure the safety of our staff and clients the Dental Health Bus will be closed until further notice. We will continue providing emergency dental service to our clients during the COVID-19 outbreak. Emergency dental services will shift to the dental clinic at the Robert Thomson Building, 110 King Street West, 3rd floor. Clients are asked to call the dental clinic at 905-546-2424 ext 3789 before coming to the office.
