The Dental Clinic is the only full service adult dental care clinic in Eastern Ontario that provides specialized care for hospital and outpatients who are medically compromised.

The staff of The Ottawa Hospital Dental Clinic provide all aspects of hospital dentistry. Patients with compromising medical conditions may receive full dental care and others with specific oral diseases may receive care for that condition while receiving general dental care from their family dentist.

The dental clinic staff members function as a team and are fully integrated with the medical staff of the hospital.

Our Services

We provide all aspects of dental care, from examination, radiographs, cleaning, fillings, extractions and dentures, through to special prostheses and implants.

Among others, we provide care to physically and mentally challenged patients, the immunocompromised, heart and cancer patients, temporomandibular joint patients, trauma and geriatric patients, and long-term care patients. We provide anesthesia services for those who wish their care under sedation. We also offer special consultation for those wishing further guidance on their dental health.

Fees for dental care are generally not covered by the provincial health plan. Our fees are similar to those of local dental offices. We accept all dental insurance coverage, and Visa, Mastercard, and debit methods of payment.

Our Team

We are staffed by a full range of dental specialists (Oral Surgeons, Endodontist, Periodontist, Prosthodontists) and experienced dentists and dental hygienists. They are registered by the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario, which is the provincial regulating body for the profession in Ontario.

Team leaders include:

  • Kevin Butterfield, DDS, MD, FRCD(C), Dip. ABOMS – Division Chief
