This presentation will briefly describe the findings of the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences (CAHS) report Improving access to oral health care for vulnerable people living in Canada, then focus discussion on means to address the recommendations. The report documented significant inequalities in oral health status and access to dental care in Canada, with significantly greater health and access problems for vulnerable groups.
