Referral Information

Any patient with a dental concern may be referred to one of our surgeons/paediatric dentists by their family physician or dentist to determine their eligibility for hospital-based treatment.

Please be reminded that typical dental treatment is not covered by OHIP and for patients with severe medical conditions, mandatory approval from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care is required before any dental treatment can take place.

Corrective jaw surgery, reconstructive surgery, cyst removal, TMJ surgery, trauma, bone grafting and other non-dental related issues are OHIP-insured services.
