Ginny Parsons, Prince George Council of Seniors vice chair and interim executive director, talks about Family Dental Care's offer of free dental care to low income seniors in Prince George.

Low income people who are 55+ in Prince George who do not have dental coverage have a chance to get basic dental work done for free on April 10 when Family Dental Care Centres offer services for those in need during Give Back Smile Back Day.

In partnership with the dental centres, Prince George Council of Seniors is taking applications at the Seniors Resource Centre, 721 Victoria Street, Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and then those eligible will be contacted by the Family Dental Care Centres to make appointments.

Services offered are cleanings, fillings and extractions.

This event sees dental teams donating their time while helping the community.

Our seniors so appreciate this,” Ginny Parsons, vice chair of the board of the Prince George Council of Seniors and interim executive director, said.

“And it’s so nice that the Family Dental Care Centres came to us to ask if we’d mind helping with the applications and we don’t mind at all – anything to help to the seniors.”

Those interested in applying can come into the Seniors Resource Centre and fill out the application on the spot and hand it in all at the same time, Parsons added.

Deadline for this program is March 28.

Another program taking place this month is a free tax clinic for those 55+.

Call the Resource Centre to make an appointment to have taxes done at 250-564-5888.
