A Dental hygienist is a registered primary healthcare professional who works under the supervision and prescription of a dentist, to assist in treating patients of all age groups. They use preventive, educational and therapeutic methods for the control of oral diseases to aid individual patients and groups in achieving and maintaining oral health, without cutting or removing teeth. They are a registered dental care provider, oral health educator and clinical operator, and work within a team environment to assure best practice in providing safe and appropriate dental healthcare.
