The Anishinabek Dental Hygiene Clinic

The Anishinabek Dental Hygiene Clinic opened to offer service to its clients in September of 2016. The clinic is located within Fort William First Nation’s Health & Wellness Centre and can also be found providing mobile outreach to participating organizations throughout Fort William First Nation and the City of Thunder Bay. We are proud to be First Nation’s owned and operated, and take pride in the autonomy of our Indigenous Nation. Our aim is to improve access to quality dental hygiene care and include service/education within existing programs that support the overall health and well-being of Indigenous people of Canada.
