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 to the residents of the province. With this change, Registered Dental Hygienists may provide their services in settings other than a dental office.
