Independent dental hygienists have specialized skills and training to provide you with the same care as a traditional dental office. The difference is that we can create a more relaxed and comfortable experience!
By adding special touches like heating pads, cozy blankets and a calm and peaceful atmosphere, clients feel more at ease while having their dental hygiene treatments. Also, the noises and smells of a traditional dental office that are often associated with anxiety and fear, are non-existent.
Dental hygienists specialize in the prevention aspect of your oral care (proper brushing, flossing, recommendations on toothpastes and adjuncts such as electric toothbrushes or water flossers, diet and nutrition), whereas dentists specialize in the repair aspect of your oral care (fixing cavities, performing root canal therapy, implant, crowns etc). This is one of the many reasons to visit an independent dental hygiene clinic - dental hygiene is our specialty! We do not fix cavities, but we can help you prevent tooth decay by educating you on all aspects of your oral health.
**Most insurances cover your dental hygiene services the same as it would at your regular dental office!**
Due to Covid-19 in 2020, Gift From The Heart unfortunately has had to be postponed. Please watch our page for updates regarding a new date.
Sparkling Smiles is excited to be participating for the second time in Gift From The Heart on April 4, 2020!
Registered Dental Hygienists all across Canada will open their hearts and clinics to provide oral health care to the public who may be financially unable to receive dental hygiene care or who have difficulty accessing dental hygiene treatment, at no cost.
The Gift from the Heart is a day set aside for registered dental hygienists all across Canada to share their skills and knowledge with those who need it the most. To date, registered dental hygienists have provided over 1 million dollars in dental hygiene care on the Gift from the Heart day.
