Can we call Medicare universal if it doesn’t cover every aspect of our health? Like Pharmacare and mental healthcare, our private dentalcare system leaves millions of Canadians without basic coverage and does outsized damage to working Canadians.

In partnership with the Coalition for Dentalcare, we’re joined by Dr. Brandon Doucet to explore the long term affects of corporate profit in the dentalcare system, the societal and human benefits of bringing dentalcare under the Canada Health Act, and what we can do to realize this change - a policy overwhelmingly supported by Canadians.
