Dental Health in Grey Bruce
We provide programs and services for babies, children and youth who are 17 years and younger.
The Grey Bruce Health Unit has cancelled all clinical services until further notice. This includes all dental services provided in our Owen Sound, Markdale, Walkerton, and Wiarton sites.
This action is being taken as part of an escalating response to safeguard the health of our communities in preventing the spread of COVID-19.
Clients will be contacted and rescheduled when clinics are able to re-open.
Please note: Clients who require immediate or urgent treatment are urged to contact us directly for an individual assessment. Please contact the Grey Bruce Health Unit at 519-376-9420 Ext 8.
