The Jim Lund Dental Clinic, located within the Welcome Hall Mission in Montreal, was officially opened on February 11. Named in recognition of the late former dean of McGill's faculty of dentistry, this clinic will provide free basic dental care to low-income families, homeless men and women and new immigrants enrolled in programs at the shelter.
McGill dental students and residents will provide treatment to patients via a referral process 3 days a week at the clinic—the first permanent clinic of its kind in the province. The clinic is the most recent addition to a range of community outreach services offered by McGill's faculty of dentistry. A video highlights McGill's dental outreach program.
