The province will expand access to free dental care to 70,000 more children and youth in low-income families.

Starting April 2014, the province will increase access to oral health services such as cleanings, diagnostic services and basic treatment by expanding eligibility for the Healthy Smiles Ontario program.

The province will also streamline six existing dental programs into one starting in August of 2015, making it easier for families of eligible children and youth to access timely dental care.

The expansion is part of Ontario's five-year Poverty Reduction Strategy.
