Thanks! We do use PubMed primarily, it's pretty good!
You're right about Medline, it's more for patients than academics. Still a good reference though!
We have a subscription to the Cochrane Library but it still makes us pay per article for anything we actually want, I'm trying to get in touch with someone there to help but their customer service really isn't great.
Thanks for the other two links for dentistry journals!
I'm realizing that I was pretty spoiled when I was in university because bigger schools can afford more subscriptions. This college I work at part time is quite small so they don't have the budget for journals that U of Toronto or a bigger uni has.
If you don't like the road you're walking, start paving another one!

Interesting question! I don't have a lot of experience in science or health, so I really don't have any suggestions. The only things that I would know to try would be PubMed and Medline Plus (though if I remember correctly Medline Plus is aimed at the general populace). A quick Google search brought up "The Open Dentistry Journal" and "International Journal of Dentistry" as open access journals, but I have no idea about the quality of the articles or the journals.
Interlibrary loan might be able to help fill in some gaps, but you can't rely solely on it. Would the students have access to any other science databases through the local public library?
