Access Oral Care

Access Oral Care © is a unique, innovative oral health community-development organization based in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada

Founded in 2011, it consists of a collaborative group of local community businesses, institutions, dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants. Through corporate sponsorship, in-kind contributions, donations and not-for-profit fund-raising activities, its mission is to restore much needed primary population-based preventive oral care programs for two important, yet often forgotten groups living in our community:

•independently-living and cared-for older adults, and

•marginalized adults and children, including those living with physical and cognitive disabililties living in our community ....who cannot afford to access primary dental care.
