Affordable Dental Clinic in Burnaby

December 3, 2012

A dental assisting program at our college, which is located across from Metrotown mall at 4980 Kingsway.
We offer the following services which may be of interest to your patient population:

· dental exam ($0)
· dental radiographs as prescribed by the dentist ($0)
· 2 units of scaling and root planing, although patients with generalized moderate to severe periodontitis are referred to VCC or UBC’s dental hygiene schools ($0)
· coronal polish ($0)
· topical fluoride – gel in trays or varnish as appropriate ($0)
· fissure sealants ($0)
· Oral hygiene, tobacco cessation, and dietary counselling as related to oral health ($0)
· simple restorations – up to three surface amalgam or composite fillings without pins or pulpal exposure ($20/tooth)
· tooth whitening via bleaching trays, including the accompanying study casts, with 14 days worth of bleaching gel ($50)

Students are supervised when providing patient services and as such, patients can expect two to three appointments of 2 hours each, depending on the number of services needed. The first appointment is for patient assessments. The second appointment is for preventive services and the third appointment is for restorative or whitening services.

A registered dental hygienist provides the periodontal debridement and fillings are done by the clinic dentist.

We only accept cash for the fillings and tooth whitening and these fees must be paid in advance to hold the appointment (this reduces the number of no-shows). We do not accept dental insurance.

The clinic is open to all ages, but patients must demonstrate financial need. We will not accept patients who have their own dentist, dental insurance, or are employed above the poverty line.

Faculty and students can speak Mandarin, Cantonese and Farsi, but this varies from clinic to clinic depending on who is available.

If you have any patients or their family members who need dental services, we would appreciate your referrals. You may contact the Clinic Coordinator, Ms. Debbie Auld, at 604-437-6030 extension 224 between 12:30 and 4:30 pm Monday to Friday to schedule appointments.

Our patient clinics begin Jan 29, 2013 and are held every Tuesday from 8 am to 5 pm at our Burnaby clinic, suite 600, 5050 Kingsway, Burnaby.

If you have any questions, please contact me. I look forward to speaking with someone from the health unit.
