Dental plan needed

Resident makes the case for a national dental program

There is a crisis in the profession of Canadian dentistry. The problem is a surplus of dentists, with a severe shortage of paying patients.

Canada, has a well functioning medical plan.

Why is it that we have no dental coverage?

As you know, we do have dental plans such as Blue Cross.

These private plans are for the benefit of wealthy citizens with good paying jobs, or private incomes.

Surely, this nation should be able to create a dental plan for the entire Canadian population from the Pacific to the Atlantic?
