Dental Screening


Dental screening is available to all children in Grey Bruce from birth until 17 years of age.

Dental screenings are visual assessments done using a sterilized mouth mirror and do not replace your child's regular dental examination with a dentist. 


In School Screenings

Dental screenings are provided annually to children in JK, SK and Grade 2 (as well as certain selected grades) in all elementary schools in Grey Bruce.

  • Screenings are done by registered dental hygienists from public health
  • Sterilized mouth mirrors are used for each student
  • You will be notified should your child require urgent dental care or preventive dental service

If your child has a dental problem (cavities, pain or infection), call the dental program to make an appointment. You do not have to wait for the school screening visit. Please call the Grey Bruce Health Unit at 519-376-9420 or 1-800-263-3456 (Press 8 for the Dental Program)
