Oral Health

Oral health is the health of your mouth. It includes your teeth, gums, jaw bone, palate (roof of the mouth), tongue, lips and the inside of your cheeks.


Having a healthy mouth is just as important for your overall health as exercising, eating a balanced diet and avoiding tobacco products. It affects how we eat and speak and also affects our mental, social and physical well-being. It is very important to develop and maintain good oral hygiene habits.


The Thunder Bay District Health Unit's Oral Health Program offers a variety of dental services. For more information, contact us:
