Media Advisory - High-risk children need dental programs that work



    Ontario Dental Association (ODA) teams up with international experts and
    stakeholders to design road map for better dental care

    TORONTO, July 4 /CNW/ -

    
    What:     The ODA is sponsoring a three-part symposium at the
              International Association of Dental Research (IADR) Conference
              entitled "Designing Dental Programs for High-Risk Children."

              "What we have clearly isn't working here in Ontario or in many
              places for that matter," says ODA Past-President Dr. Ian
              McConnachie. "This symposium is a great opportunity to work to
              fix it. We, the ODA, the stakeholders and the international
              experts are going to lay out a road map and we are going to
              make it better - kids here and everywhere deserve that."
