Welcome to the Gentle Dental Hygiene Care

Now Accepting New Clients
If you do not have dental insurance or have insurance but cannot afford to pay the costs up front and wait to be reimbursed or even if you need more convenient appointment times, then

Gentle Dental Hygiene Care is the place for you!

Since the passing of Bill 181 in 2007, the Ministry of Health acknowledged the advanced skills that Dental Hygienists possess and recognized the need to increase public access to oral hygiene and oral health services.

By amending the Ontario Dental Hygiene Act, the government permitted Registered Dental Hygenists to practice independently without the presence of a Dentist. This allows Dental Hygienists to practice within a more relaxed, individualized and quiet environment.

Another one of the huge differences between the dentist office and Gentle Dental Hygiene Care is the price. The Ontario Dental Hygiene fee guide fees are 20-40 % lower than the Ontario Dentists Association current fee guide fees. This is a great help to those who do not have insurance and wish to access dental hygiene services but normally cannot afford to. Our fee guide is accepted by most insurance companies and we accept insurance assignment which means the insurance company pays us directly.

Gentle Dental Hygiene Care is also pleased to offer extended hours for those who have busy work or activity schedules, these include evening and Saturday appointments.

Gentle Dental Hygiene Care is proud to be the first independent dental hygiene clinic in Goderich and surrounding areas.
