Journal of Oral Health and Community Dentistry


The impact of oral health on total health and personal wellbeing has been well documented. Unfortunately, many individuals suffer from the effects of poor oral health and cannot seek dental care due to financial limitations. The Dental Outreach Community Service (DOCS) program at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at Western University, functions to provide free dentistry to those individuals within an educational context. This report looks at the spatial distribution of family income and the spatial representation of the DOCS program in London, Ontario, between 2008 and 2015. A DOCS spatial distribution map has been generated to illustrate the association.

Keywords: Dental, Education, Income, Outreach, Spatial.
