CHIEF DENTAL OFFICER

Free Dental Day with MCA

At our inaugural Free Dental Day with MCA on June 17, 2017, our team of inspired volunteers and sponsors came together to host an event at one of our proud member’s clinic, Connexion Dental in Ottawa. The clinical team with the help of the volunteers worked together to provide over $30,000 in free dental services to nearly 100 patients who otherwise, would not have received needed dental care.  In 2018, we provided dental services to 83 patients.  We are looking forward to helping the community once again at our event on September 14th, 2019.

CHEO & Pediatric Oncology

Dr. Mark McCullough and Dr. Timothy Winlow of MCA Dental Group through their volunteer work with the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CEO) and the Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO) After-Care Team have provided dental care to approximately 10 patients per year, totaling over 70 survivors since 2011.

Brush-a-mania

Brush-a-mania is a program that promotes good oral and overall health to elementary school children across Canada every April during Oral Health Month.  Dentists visit schools to educate students on the importance of oral health.  In 2019, we presented Brush-a-mania at three elementary schools: General Vanier Public School, Steve Maclean Public School and Manotick Montessori.  MCA Dental Group’s co-founder, Dr. Mark McCullough, and Dr. Melvin Lee were on CTV News to promote Brush-a-mania here in Ottawa.

Student Mentorship

This year we held two successful Dental Student Clinical Mentorship Days which were held on March 11th and July 8th, 2019 attracting first-year and fourth-year dental students.

Our legacy is measured by the way we support the communities in which we operate
