Vote before March 30 for a Specialized Dental Clinic for Adults with Developmental Disabilities

Posted March 19, 2015

Vote online to support the creation of a specialized dental service for adults with Developmental Disabilities through UBC’s ‘Start an Evolution Competition’. Adults with developmental disabilities in B.C. are frequently denied access to appropriate dental services through a lack of qualified providers, lack of funding to pay for treatment and a two year waiting list for access to facilities where they can receive a general anaesthetic.

See Joan Rush, retired lawyer’s report Help! Teeth Hurt – a legal analysis of B.C.’s failure to provide care to those who are living in agony.
