The College of Dental Hygienists of Nova Scotia

The College of Dental Hygienists of Nova Scotia exists so that, in the best interest of the public, the practice of dental hygiene is effectively regulated and the integrity of the profession is supported through the cost-effective stewardship of resources.

Dental Hygienists are Superheroes


Let your dental hygienist work with you to improve your oral health and overall health. 

National Dental Hygienists Week™ (NDHW™) took place on April 6‒12, 2019 as part of Oral Health Month in Canada. This week emphasized “Oral Health for Total Health”. Dental hygienists remind us that taking care of our mouth, teeth, and gums benefits our overall physical and mental well-being. Dental hygienists are oral health experts and primary health care providers. They work in traditional dental offices and independent dental hygiene practices, clinics, hospitals, long-term care facilities, and the community.
