Jim Lund Dental Clinic

Due to financial constraints and lack of insurance, many of Montreal’s disadvantaged never see a dentist because it isn’t affordable on a tight budget. This fact sparked the idea of creating a free dental clinic, and so the Jim Lund Dental Clinic was born. Montreal’s first permanent, free dental care clinic, was created through a partnership between McGill University’s Faculty of Dentistry and Welcome Hall Mission.

No insurance? No toothbrush? No problem!

For those who can’t obtain dental care

To be ashamed of your smile because your teeth are in bad condition is a reality that many Montrealers living below the poverty line know too well. The Jim Lund Clinic gives everyone access to dental care.

” … I spent a lot of time with a broken tooth… I don’t know how to thank you… Today I can smile again… “

says John Banks who benefited from our service and is grateful to smile again without being ashamed. This service is offered to the homeless, and to low income Montrealers who don’t have dental insurance and wouldn’t have access to treatment if this service didn’t exist.

Thanks to generous support from socially responsible foundations, organizations and individual donors, the Clinic was inaugurated on February 11, 2011. It is in partnership with McGill University’s Faculty of Dentistry.

The Jim Lund Clinic was named in memory of the past Dean of McGill University’s Faculty of Dentistry, who died suddenly in December 2009. Jim Lund was a passionate advocate of quality dental care in a community setting. During his tenure, the Faculty’s Outreach Program flourished, offering mobile dental clinics throughout the city and at Welcome Hall Mission twice a year.

Services offered:

  • Complete dental examination
  • Regular and deep cleaning (under local anaesthetic)
  • Simple fillings
  • Simple extractions
  • Referrals to the Montreal General Hospital in emergency cases
