“Thanks for the awesome dental hygiene treatment last Saturday and for spending so much time with me and explaining all my options for future treatments!!!   The whole time it felt like a great experience, and not feel like a dental appointment. You’ve certainly created a one of a kind facility for patients to feel comfortable and welcome – other clinics can learn a lot from you and your practice!!!   There is no doubt your business has unlimited growth potential – I’m glad I got in before you get too busy. Thanks again for everything!”- Cho Nov 2011

Happy Fathers Day- from “fresh”

Fathers Day- What do you buy for a dad who has everything?

Why not “re-fresh” dad’s or mom’s smile with an in-office professional laser teeth whitening experience?

Teeth age over time and can dis-color.

At “fresh”,  dad can relax in a gentle massaging dental chair, while a dental hygiene professional whitens his teeth.

This treatment also includes custom touch-up trays, for at home use.

“fresh” Special- $450 ( reg. $600) expiry August 2011

“Dental hygiene education in Alberta is attained through a three year diploma or four year degree program at the University of Alberta. Course of study includes all areas that will support evidence-based practice such as:

  • general studies (e.g. English, communications, psychology, sociology)
  • biomedical sciences (e.g. histology, microbiology, pharmacology, biochemistry, anatomy, physiology, nutrition, pathology )
  • dental sciences (e.g. dental anatomy, embryology, head and neck anatomy, oral pathology, oral physiology, oral therapeutics, dental radiography)
  • clinical practice
  • community health
  • education foundations
  • ethics
  • advocacy
  • research methods
  • health promotion

Additionally, dental hygienists can apply to be on specific rosters indicating that they have the education and competencies to:

  • prescribe the limited medications used in dental hygiene practice;
  • administer local anaesthetic by injection; and
  • prescribe and administer nitrous oxide/ oxygen for conscious sedation.

Some dental hygienists in administrative and teaching positions complete graduate education at a Masters or PhD level.”

This information is quoted from The College Of Registered Dental Hygienist Of Alberta web page under the heading “for the public”.
