Dental hygienists give from the heart

Independent dental hygienist practitioners across Canada will open their doors this Saturday for the sixth annual Gift from the Heart.

Independent dental hygienist practitioners across Canada will open their doors this Saturday for the sixth annual Gift from the Heart.

On this day they will share their professional skills and offer free dental hygiene services for individuals who experience financial or other barriers in accessing dental hygiene care.

Local independent dental hygienist Heather Mayhew, owner of Floss Dental Hygiene Services Inc. on Comox Avenue, is excited to participate this year.

“It is a great opportunity to give back to the community. We have a number of volunteers from the local dental hygiene society that will be helping out. We are planning on seeing as many people as we can from 9 to 4:30.

“Services such as oral cancer screenings, blood pressure checks, scaling, polishing, fluoride treatments and oral hygiene instruction will be offered. Even if we are not able to get you in for a cleaning, we have a couple of gift baskets to raffle off and there is free oral health information and education.”

If you are interested in finding out more information on Gift from the Heart, call 250-941-0488. Also, check www.giftfromtheheart.ca and www.flossdentalhygiene.ca.
