The Alpha Omega Dental Centre draws clients from within Baycrest and accepts referrals from long-term care homes, assisted living residences, hospitals and dentists unable to adequately care for this population. It improves the capacity of all dentists to care for the geriatric population by:

  • Providing consultative support to dentists in the community
  • Conducting research and publishing findings
  • Accepting patients who cannot be accommodated in general practice
