Dental Care Announcement Expected on Thursday

The Ontario Conservatives are expected to announce free dental care for low-income seniors in this week's provincial budget.

It's estimated the program could cost nearly $100-million per year.

Senior government sources say anyone 65 and over in the province making under $19,300 or $32,300 for couples, would qualify.

The service could be accessed through public health units, community health centres and aboriginal health access centres, with the potential for mobile dental units in the future.
