U of M Offering City’s Homeless Dental Implants

By Brian Schultz

A new program to help 35 homeless people receive dental implants will be launched by the University of Manitoba today.

The Niznick Overdenture Program is a $500,000 project that will see U of M dental students pioneer a new technology to offer implants valued at $10,000 per patient.

The university has partnered with Siloam Mission’s health centre to offer complete dental implants to the homeless shelter’s clients.

The first nine patients will begin the 12-week procedure at the U of M’s Dental Clinic on Bannatyne Avenue this afternoon.
