WHO WE ARE
The Pacific Oral Health Society is dedicated to providing access to oral and dental health care for lower income and vulnerable individuals and families in the Fraser Valley region of British Columbia. We intend to work with established agencies in the community, such as food banks, women's shelters, hospice societies as well as drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres to assist individuals who currently do not receive professional oral health care. The Society opened its Centre in March, 2013.
In executing its primary purpose of providing access to oral health care, the Society will provide dental services at reduced rates, consistent with the fees of the University of British Columbia's Faculty of Dentistry, to those patients in demonstrated financial need. We welcome all patients and if financial need cannot be demonstrated, we will provide dental care according to the British Columbia Dental Association's Fee Guide.
