We prioritize youth and try to triage patients based on their needs, but for the most part the SHINE clinic is run on a first come-first serve basis. The clinic opens at 09:00 on Saturday, but those patients who want to increase their chances of being treated may choose to line up early as space is limited.
There is no charge to patients. However, there may be limits to what can be performed due to equipment and timing.
Please note: the goal of SHINE dentistry is to operate every Saturday during the school year (September to June). However, the SHINE dentistry clinic depends entirely on the support of our volunteers and as such, we cannot guarantee the clinic will be open every Saturday.
