Q: Are dental hygienists allowed to work without a dentist?
A: YES! You can choose who cleans your teeth! In 2007, the laws in Ontario changed to reflect the importance of increasing access to care for the residents of the province. With this change, Registered Dental Hygienists may provide their services in settings other than a dental office.
Q: Why should you choose Norfolk Dental Hygiene for your cleanings?
A: At Norfolk Dental Hygiene (NDH) we strive to provide quality service in a relaxing environment!
We develop a customized treatment plan that is unique to you in order to help you achieve optimal oral health. A holistic approach is what we are known for! We are continually researching more natural options for dental hygiene treatment, products and tools. At NDH we like to collaborate with other healthcare professionals and we work together for the benefit of our mutual clients. We get to know our clients quite well and sometimes refer to other health professionals as needed. We would be proud to be a member of your overall health team.
Q: Do I still need to see a dentist?
A: At NDH our main focus is prevention, not repair. Assessments are done at each of your appointments
if any concerns are observed these will be discussed with you and will be given the appropriate referral.
Working together is an important aspect of meeting all of your oral health needs!
Q: Do you "direct bill"?
A: YES- we will submit to insurance on your behalf and accept payment from your insurance provider.
NOTE: with increases in wait time to receive payments, we would prefer clients pay for services at the time they are rendered and insurance directly reimburse the member. Many companies have online portals and direct deposit to make receiving a reimbursement faster.
