McGill University (referred to as "McGill") welcomes you (the “User”) to the Oral Health Provider Database (the “Database”).

The Database is intended to increase access to oral health services for Canadians living in remote or underserviced areas to improve their oral health.

The Database is a tool designed to match, alert via email and connect oral health providers interested in working in remote or underserviced areas with communities, health facilities or clinics looking for providers and vice versa.

The Database is comprised of two lists: oral health providers willing to work in remote or underserviced areas and communities, health facilities or clinics looking for oral health providers.
