Care Kids Program

Care Dental works to identify and rectify gaps in the provincial dental programs, and through their CareKids Program, which provides needed services at no charge to COFH referrals.

At Care Dental, their dental practice is built on three pillars – Care for Team, Care for Patients and Care for Community. In partnership with the Central Okanagan Family Hub, the CareKids program brings to life their Care for Community pillar in the most rewarding of ways. Working closely with The Hub, every month Care Dental provides no-cost dental examination and treatment for a little mouth in need, age 16 or younger. If you or someone you know would like to apply to be one of our CareKids, please contact Katelin Mitchell, Director of Services at katelin@nullkcr.ca for an application. That’s just one of the ways we are showing that when it comes to Care – we walk the talk – and love doing it.
