Access to free or discounted services for our members
Free Dental Clinic at Share the Warmth – hosted by McGill University’s Mobile Dental Clinic
In partnership with the McGill University School of Dentistry, Share the Warmth holds free dental clinics twice a year. The goal is to provide basic dental care to our members who cannot afford it. The clinic is open to new immigrants who have yet to find work, low-income families, single-parent families, or people receiving social assistance benefits for less than a year. There are limited spaces at the clinic and registration is required.
For more information or to register for the next clinic, please contact Julie at (514) 933-5599 (ext. 224).
Share the Warmth is happy to welcome the Bonhomme à lunettes on Tuesdays between 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Dr. Philippe Rochette’s team is on hand to provide individuals with expert advice and affordable glasses.
Individuals on social assistance can get a pair of glasses for as little as $20.
Important: You first need to get an eye exam from an optometrist. Bring your prescription and if applicable proof of social assistance.

Students in Université de Montréal’s Pharmacy Department prepared a pamphlet on the importance of dental health.
