It’s so very often that we have indigenous patients come in to our office and tell us how they’ve been searching for a dental office that deals directly with NIHB (Treaty coverage), as many offices will refuse it due to strict frequency limitations and delays with payments. We’ve had to listen to several heartbreaking stories of people living in pain because they weren’t sure where to go.
At Metropolitan Dental, not only do we have a close working relationship with the staff at NIHB, but we also work closely with several nursing stations to ensure patients from up North can be provided with transportation to and from our dental office. Not only do we pride ourselves on being able to answer all their questions when it comes to their dental coverage but we love educating everyone on proper oral care and maintenance for those times they’re not able to come see us on a regular basis.
Metropolitan Dental is a proud supporter of Grassroots News, Clemence Wescoupe Art, Eddie Kakepetum Art and the Metis Friendship Centre. We also keep an active list of First Nations Chief Offices and Nursing Stations in order to mail calendars, toothbrushes and floss annually to aid in our goal to help provide proper oral health maintenance throughout all of Manitoba.
