Janeway Pediatric Dentistry Service

The Janeway Pediatric Dentistry Service has been caring for the dental needs of children in Newfoundland and Labrador since 1986. The service provides dental as follows.
  • Children with medical conditions such as cerebral palsy, autism, cleft palate, bleeding disorders and cancer.
  • Children with compromised immune systems who are better treated in a hospital setting.
  • Children who are inpatients at the Janeway Children’s Health and Rehabilitation Centre for extended periods of time or regular patients of the Development and Rehabilitation Division. 
  • Infants and toddlers who are too young to cooperate for their dental care.
  • Appointments are by referral only. 
Children may be treated in the dental clinic or in the operating room if more complex dental care is necessary. 
Operation Tooth
Operation Tooth is a program whereby available operating room time at hospitals throughout the province is used by pediatric dentistry to carry out necessary dental treatment for children near their homes. Since its inception in 2008, Operation Tooth visits have taken place in hospitals in Goose Bay, Gander and the Burin area.
