A Dental Chain of Events

Halton Particular Council has been actively helping the families gain access to desperately needed dental services since 2012.
We are focused on 3 pillars of support.
Ensuring children have access to the Healthy Smiles Dental program,
Adults to get access to teeth cleaning and
Adults to get access to emergency dental care.

We keep talking about the work of SSVP and this yielded some fruit as a dentist in our bible study mentioned SSVP in a chance conversation and so, we were invited to make a pitch to the charity committee of the Halton Peel Dental Association. We were chosen as their 2019 charity of choice and awarded a $10,000 donation to supplement our Halton dental fund. We were also invited to connect families into Dr. Fung’s annual Smile Day and on March 29, 16 Neighbours in Need got access to pro bono dental services.

Here is a picture of Linda from Mary Mother of God conference and Hania from St. Matthews conference in Oakville accepting the donation. The dentists and hygienists participating in the Smile Day are also pictured.
