Well-funded provincial program better than federal dental plan
Editor’s note: The following was sent to Premier Tim Houston about plans for a federal dental program.
For over half a century, Nova Scotians have benefited from provincially administered government dental programs that cover a range of services for targeted members of our population.
Some elements of dental care are provided to children, persons with special health care needs, and those requiring in-hospital care for oral surgery and orofacial conditions. Envied by many other provinces and territories, the intent of these programs has always been to optimize oral health for Nova Scotians.
