oral-healthRecent anecdotal reports have suggested that Canada's middle class are now experiencing financial barriers to dental care.
While recent evidence has confirmed that working poor individuals suffer the greatest economic burdens when accessing dental care, do these economic challenges affect the middle class?

This Fireside Chat will present the newest, state-of-the-art evidence available on this issue. It will demonstrate that financial barriers to dental care are climbing the socioeconomic spectrum, as employment, insurance, and professional markets respond to the financial hardships of the new century.

Participants will learn how the changing nature of employment and insurance in the context of increasing dental care prices affects the ability of middle class households to access dental care, and what policy options are available to mitigate this new potential risk.
