Partnerships are at the foundation of the SKH philosophy. From the partnership among the Doctors through partnering with clients, technology and our community, we realize that leveraging diverse strengths is a key to success.
An important source of our strength lies in our partnership with independent corporate providers of dental hygiene services and technical health care services. Under the clinical supervision of the Doctors, these providers make an important contribution to the well-being of our patients.
Partnering With Technology
SKH has created partnerships with our suppliers to provide the most up to date materials and equipment. As our suppliers unveil new innovations to the dental industry we are continually updated and often pioneer new advances.
Dental Care Centre
The Dental Care Centre Mission:
To balance the promotion of optimal home oral health care with a focused contribution to the lives of individuals in our community.
Our Dental Care Centre is an "in-house" boutique for oral health care products.
Each year an area of need is identified in our local community, where all profits from the Dental Care Centre are directed.
Selecting one area of need provides us with an area of focus in order to have a maximum impact.
In 2011 we are happy to support the Moving Forward Fund - Family and Children Services, with the proceeds from our Dental Care Centre.
In past years we have supported Out of the Cold programs, House of Friendship, Anselma House, Kidsability, Grand River Hospital and many others. We are pleased to be able to create an arrangement that benefits both our patients and the community within which we live.
In some circumstances your dentist may refer you to see a dental specialist for consultation. Specialists are highly educated in the diagnosis and treatment of a specific part of dentistry. The most common specialties in dentistry are outlined above.
