          Abstract

          Physicians' offices and emergency departments (EDs) are not suited for addressing nontraumatic dental conditions (NTDCs); however, significant numbers of people in Canada, including Ontario, visit such settings for their dental complaints. Also, people sometimes visit hospitals for day surgery to get their complicated dental conditions treated. This reflects the inefficient usage of the health care system and gaps in accessing timely dental care.
