Toronto's Medical Officer of Health, Dr. David McKeown, will be joined by the Honourable Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, Sister Georgette Gregory of Fontbonne Ministries and Suzanne Boggild, CEO of Sherbourne Health Centre, for an official ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil the MDC bus.

The Mobile Dental Clinic is a fully accessible environmentally friendly bus that is equipped with two dental stations and a sterilization centre. The MDC will travel to partnering community health centres to offer free dental services to eligible children 17 years and under. The bus is 100 per cent funded by the province and is one component of the Healthy Smiles Ontario program.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.7 million people.
