The Extra Smile

Independent Dental Hygienist

In September 2007 the Ontario government amended the Dental Hygiene Act of 1991, allowing authorized Registered Dental Hygienists to scale teeth and root plane without an order from a dentist. The client can now choose where to receive dental hygiene care.

Lori McDonald is a lifetime resident of Burlington, a Dental Hygienist registered and regulated by the College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario, and is authorized to practice independent of a dentist. She is also a member of the Canadian Dental Hygienists' Association, is also certified in Interim Stabilation Therapy and is licensed as a Dental Hugienist with the Government of Nunavut where she has travelled north of the Arctic Circle to provide treatment to the Inuit children living in remote communities.
