Making a Difference in our Community
"It's so convenient for me to get dental care at Baycrest in an environment I know is specific to the needs of seniors." - Helen Knight, resident, Terraces of Baycrest
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
Dentists who wish to volunteer or learn more about geriatric dentistry are welcome.
A referral is not always necessary but referrals are required for clients under the care of a physician and can be faxed to 416-785-2858.
