Due to the growing concerns regarding COVID-19, SHINE Dentistry has made the difficult decision to close our doors indefinitely at this time. To protect our volunteers, staff, and patients (who often wait for extended periods of time in our waiting area), we at SHINE are taking social precautions seriously. We encourage our patients and volunteers to be cautious and put their health first during this time.

Thank you for your understanding,

SHINE Dentistry

About Us

IMPORTANT: The SHINE clinic RE-OPENED January 26th, 2019 in the new Boyle McCauley Health Centre Dental Clinic located in the Metis Capital Renaissance Tower.  This new clinic space will allow us to increase from 4 to 8 operatories, allowing for more than 900 new patients!

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 08:30 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.  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.

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
