Main Street Dental Team, Unionville’s Most Innovative Dental Clinic, Remarks on New Regulation Allowing Dentists to Treat Their Spouses

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) July 16, 2014

Main Street Dental Team, (, Unionville’s first full-time dental clinic, is commenting on the recent announcement by the Ontario Dental Association and Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario to allow dentists to provide dental care services to their spouses.

Taking effect immediately, Bill 70, Regulated Health Professions Amendment Act (Spousal Exception), 2013 was given unanimous support. Its significance will be felt most in the rural and northern communities of Ontario. Dr. Gerald Smith, president of the Ontario Dental Association commented, saying that “many spouses of dentists across Ontario are smiling today, knowing their oral health can be looked after by their spouse should they choose.” (Source: “Ontario Dental Association Announces Spousal Treatment Now Permitted in Ontario,” Ontario Dental Association web site, July 11, 2014;

“This is one of those bills that helps move along the profession,” says Dr. Harvey Schwartz, owner of Main Street Dental Team. “It should be up to the individual to decide on who they can go to for dental services. Bill 70 is really a bill about choice.”

Bill 70 was originally passed in October 2013, when it received unanimous support. The bill, an amendment to the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991, was also supported by all three parties of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario.

“Any way oral care can be made more accessible to everyone must be seen as a positive,” Dr. Schwartz concludes. “It’s important to remember how vital it is for people to receive regular oral care, no matter where they live. Access is the first step to positive oral health.”

Main Street Dental Team was established in 1967 and became the first full-time dental practice in the community. Main Street Dental Team provides a full range of dental services for all ages, including preventive dentistry, restorative/cosmetic dentistry, providing clients with the ultimate smile makeovers, dental Implants, surgery, full and partial dentures, and treatment for gum disease. To better serve the needs of Unionville’s growing population, their staff also speaks Mandarin and Cantonese. To learn more about Main Street Dental Team, visit the web site at
