If you’ve been in a dental office waiting room anywhere in Ontario, you’ve probably seen or read YourOralHealth.ca! This magazine is written just for patients to keep them up to date on interesting dental health information ahead of their appointment.

YourOralHealth.ca is published twice a year and sent out to more than 10,000 member-dentists across Ontario.

As part of COVID-19 pandemic safety protocols, dental offices haven’t been able to provide any magazines for patients. As soon as that changes, YourOralHealth.ca will be back in waiting rooms with lots of interesting and informative stories. In the meantime, enjoy these past issues.
