Oral Health, Total Health (OHTH) is a non-for profit group dedicated to addressing the lack of access to oral health care issues facing persons with special needs. OHTH has a mission to advocate, educate and ultimately, improve the oral health care for this population.

Currently, this population of individuals find it very difficult to find local care and as a result are referred to hospitals where they may wait up to 6-12 months for a simple consultation. One of the major factors with this issue is the lack of dentist comfort/familiarity with this group. OHTH is aimed at changing this by hosting its annual Sharing Smiles Days, where dental students, hygiene students and faculty come out to have a fun-filled day with special needs participants. The goal of the day is to break any attitudinal barriers that might exist and begin to foster positive relationships between the two groups. The day is completely free for all who attend, with each participant receiving a free t-shirt and lunch. Last year, more than 100 students and clients of Community Living London pariticpated. This year the event will be held at The Great Hall (UWO) on Sunday, March 27th from 10am-2pm.
