As Regulated Health Professionals, community health and safety are our primary concerns. As far as COVID-19 goes, this situation seems to be changing rapidly. All volunteers are urged to follow the evidence-based recommendations of their Local Public Health Department and Health Canada. If our volunteer dental hygienists have to or opt to postpone their event, we support that 100%.

Giving back can happen any day of the year.
