Lookout operates a two-chair dental clinic to serve those who are unable to access dental treatment otherwise. In addition to providing a range of treatment services, patients are able to access hygiene services to learn about maintaining their oral health. The Dental Clinic is based on a social enterprise model, where costs are offset by revenues generated through regular dental services.
The Dental Clinic was opened in response to a 2008 study identifying that low income people face significant barriers in getting access to dental treatment, even where the person qualifies for income assistance. The clinic is located at the Surrey North Community Health Centre, offering cross-referral opportunities to support a holistic health model for individuals and families attending the clinic.
