SHINE Dentistry

The SHINE (Student Health Initiative for the Needs of Edmonton) Dental Clinic is a student run organization established through the University of Alberta and the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry. Based out of the Boyle McCauley Centre, our organization provides dental care for youth in need at no cost to our patients.




Shine Volunteers

About Us

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.

The SHINE clinic is currently CLOSED for the summer and will be operating out of a new location in the fall, please check the website for updates. See you in the fall!


Important information about our clinic:

  • No appointments are necessary
  • We DO treat adults, but give preference to seeing children first (if there are any present)
  • Please check our calendar before planning to come in to confirm we will be open!
  • We only treat those with no dental insurance
  • We provide mostly fillings extractions, and hygiene services (cleanings). We are unable to provide any treatments that require a dental laboratory (crowns, implants, dentures, etc). We are also unable to offer any orthodontics
  • SHINE dentistry is entirely supported by our annual golf tournament fundraiser and volunteers from the dental community of Edmonton
