The Jim Lund Clinic at the Welcome Mission Hall is a free dental service offered to low income and homeless Montrealers who don’t have any type of dental insurance (private or government subsidised). Created through a partnership between McGill University’s Faculty of Dentistry and Welcome Hall Mission, it is Montreal’s first permanent, free dental care clinic.

Due to financial constraints and lack of insurance, many of Montreal’s disadvantaged never see a dentists because it isn’t affordable on a tight budget. This fact sparked the idea of creating a free dental clinic, and the Jim Lund Dental Clinic was inaugurated on February 11, 2011 thanks to generous support from socially responsible foundations, organizations and individual donors to the Welcome Hall Mission and the Faculty of Dentistry.
