We have all experienced the client who comes into our lives that cannot financially afford our dental hygiene care. They are the under-serviced, the neglected, those without dental insurance or those on a fixed income. In 2009, I founded the Gift from the Heart, a one day event which allows Registered Dental Hygienists to give back to their communities by providing no cost dental hygiene care. The response was overwhelming.

For the fourth consecutive year Registered Dental Hygienists all across Ontario will be giving a different type of GIFT this Valentine’s weekend.

On Saturday February 11, 2012 Registered Dental Hygienists across the province will open their hearts and clinics to provide oral health care to the public who may be financially unable to receive dental hygiene care or who have difficulty accessing dental hygiene treatment; at no cost.
