I didn’t know that Dental Hygienists
are allowed to open their own practices. Is it legal?

The Bill 171 was passed on September 1, 2007 permitting dental hygienists to operate independently. Those hygienists who are suitable for this type of practice obtain a self initiation seal. They are registered with the College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario (CDHO) as those who are permitted to initiate scaling and root planning without the order from a dentist.
