Dental health

Various precautionary measures are in place on our territory in order to reduce tooth decay in young people aged 18 and under by 40%:

  • Detection of children at risk of cavities in all kindergarten classes;
  • Use of precautionary measures in children at risk, namely two yearly applications of fluoride for three years and educational activities on dental health;
  • Application of dental sealant for those same children in second grade.

The Clé en main program is also available for each residential and long term care centre (CHSLD).

We also promote the fluoridation of drinking water to major municipalities on our territory.
