Develop the knowledge, skills, and judgement needed to become a self-regulated health professional. A large part of your training will include hands-on clinical practice. Students work with clients from the community on-site in Canadore’s Dental Hygiene Clinic, where they offer free dental hygiene services as they put their clinical theory into practice. Graduates are in high demand, finding employment in dental offices, hospitals, and research institutes. This program is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada.

What You’ll Learn

  • Practise in a professional and competent manner within the defined scope of practice and consistent with current regulations and standards of practice.
  • Evaluate clients’ oral health status using determinants of health and risk analysis to identify needs, justify treatment decisions and provide appropriate referrals to other health care professionals as required.
  • Design, implement and evaluate a range of primary, interceptive, therapeutic, preventative, and on-going oral health care services to meet the unique needs of clients.
  • Analyze oral health issues in need of advocacy, identify networks and promote actions that will support change and facilitate access to care.
  • Identify, select, implement and evaluate quality assurance standards and protocols which contribute to a safe and effective working environment.
  • Establish and maintain professional and interprofessional relationships which contribute to client care safety and positive health care outcomes.
  • Facilitate the development of specific oral health attitudes, knowledge, skills, and behaviours in clients by selecting and utilizing principles of teaching and learning.
  • Develop and present a model for a dental hygiene practice that addresses relevant business principles, current legislation and standards of practice.

A wonderful local option for anyone in northern Ontario. Very good facilities, excellent teachers and I had no trouble finding a field placement and a job after graduation. With degree inflation, some of the students had BA's in education and came to Canadore to get certified. Something to keep in mind for those of you unsure about which path to take. I have since moved into a management role at a private centre.
