West Kootenay Community TEETH Clinic Society

([email protected]/250-352-3543)


The TEETH Clinic in Nelson is preparing to reopen this summer, 2023, following a devastating fire last year. 

Despite the fire, their dental records were saved. If you had been a registered patient, you DO NOT need to re-register.

With the new Federal Government Dental Plan for families who qualify, currently children under 12, but soon to be children 18 and under, and seniors, dental treatments will be free for up to $650. Maximum, if families apply for the annual amount of $650 and leave it on deposit with the clinic.

The TEETH Clinic provides dental care at approximately 60% of the Provincial Fee Guide.

Government Funded Benefit Programs are funded at Ministry Rates.

The Clinic provides a range of costs for services as the services are dependent on your individual needs, including emergency fees for pain relief.
