All Aboard VCC's Tooth Trolley

VANCOUVER, B.C. —As part of an ongoing effort to make basic dental care more accessible to all, Vancouver Community College (VCC) will provide free dental assessments and basic services to 120 children through the ninth annual Chevron Tooth Trolley event, May 19 to 22, 2015.

With funding from Chevron Canada—totaling $200,000 since 2007—and in partnership with the Vancouver Trolley Company, VCC will open the doors of its 32-seat downtown dental clinic to pre-registered children and their families from seven Vancouver and Burnaby  elementary schools.

The Chevron Tooth Trolley provides a learning opportunity for both VCC dental program students and participants. “For many children, this is their first dental experience so we want to help make that introduction less scary, while at the same time educational,” says Margaret Dennett, Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) instructor and co-director of the event.
