The role of the independent dental hygiene clinic today:
Because we are independent, instead of employed by a dentist, we can do things differently here.
This particular dental hygiene clinic has focussed from the beginning on lowering barriers to access to dental maintenance care, whether those barriers be FEAR, PHYSICAL or FINANCIAL.
- It has very little to do with money, it has to do with focus:
- If you want to be well, we'll help get you there.
As primary health care professionals, serving the public directly, we practice the FULL SCOPE OF PRACTICE FOR DENTAL HYGIENISTS BC.
Without all that built-up junk, you may be healthier than you think.
We can help get you there.
