With summer, often comes the fun and excitement of vacations, daily outings in the sunshine, picnics by the lake, and all kinds of other outdoor play. These scheduled and unscheduled events alike hold a lot of fun, likely creating lasting memories for years to come.
An Unscheduled Summer …the perfect time to schedule a dental checkup!
“Un-scheduling” your summer can leave it wide open for a lot of last minute fun, and this can offer up a nice break in routine from the rest of the year.

The Healthy Kids Program is a government-funded program that helps low-income families with basic dental care. Book your appointment at one of our many dental offices in the Lower Mainland, inform the receptionist about your coverage, and your child will be ready to come in for their next dental appointment.
Healthy Kids Program Coverage Includes:
Dental – Children are eligible for $1400 of basic dental services every two years. This coverage includes services such as exams, x-rays, fillings, cleanings and extractions. Dentists can advise families of other services that may be covered.
Optical – Children are eligible for prescription eyeglasses (lenses and basic frames) once in a twelve-month period. Children’s eye examinations are covered by MSP.
Additional charges over and above what the Healthy Kids Program will cover are the responsibility of the family.
