Department of Dentistry at Baycrest Hospital
The Department of Dentistry at Baycrest Hospital is a clinical care, teaching and research center that provides essential general and specialist dental services to hospital inpatients and a large medically compromised outpatient population including frail elderly.
Our areas of expertise include dental care for medically complex patients who cannot safely access care in a community dental practice. Members of our treatment team include general dentists, dental specialists, and hygienists who have additional training and experience working with such patients.
Oral health is directly connected to systemic health and the Department of Dentistry plays a strategic role in the improvement of health for patients at Baycrest Hospital. The Department provides care collaboratively with other health-care providers at Baycrest Hospital, offering a full range of modern dental services and innovative solutions to complex clinical problems.
As an academic centre, members of the Department of Dentistry conduct important research which shapes the care delivered to patients and which has wide policy implications. The Department of Dentistry provides training to health care students in medicine, dentistry, and other allied health professions.
The Department of Dentistry is an accredited Dental Service by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada and is affiliated with the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Toronto.
Full range of dental care for adults includes:
- general dental care
- oral surgery
A specialized lift is available for the comfort of patients who use a wheelchair.
We are committed to delivering the highest quality evidence-based oral healthcare for patients who require treatment in a hospital environment. Our patient-centred approach focuses on disease prevention and management in a barrier-free environment.
The Department of Dentistry at Baycrest Hospital was founded in 1954 by Dr. Reuben Brown and was recently renovated with a generous support from the Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity, TD bank and other donors.
