Dental Health Supports Wholistic Health
The SOAHAC Dental Clinic provides oral health care services to First Nations, Métis, and Inuit adults and children with preauthorized dental coverage.
The clinic also provides services to all others that carry dental benefits through private insurance carriers
or pay for dental care directly. The clinic is able to direct bill to most insurance providers for those who
have dental benefits.
First Nations, Métis, and Inuit clients, our clinic staff will get the preauthorization on your behalf and begin services based on coverage with one of the following: private benefit card, status card / Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB), ODSP dental card, Ontario Seniors Dental Care Program (OSDCP), Healthy Smiles Ontario card, Children’s Aid Society, Ontario Works statement of assistance/drug benefit card for
