CDHO Dental Hygiene Standards of Practice

CDHO Dental Hygiene Standards of Practice: What every RDH should know.

As a guide, our Standards of Practice provide a base-line of acceptable protocol in the dental hygiene profession.

They allow us to monitor ourselves and our dental hygiene practice and help to identify areas that may require enhancement or upgrading. 

In 2012, a new and improved document explaining our Standards of Practice was released. Join us as we ‘de-mystify’ and gain a clearer understanding of their meaning and application.
