Just a few weeks ago on February 8, 2014 four dental hygiene clinics in B.C. participated in “Gift from the Heart”. The Gift from the Heart program began in 2009 when dental hygienists in Ontario not only wanted to alert stakeholders to the number of people who go without oral health care, but also demonstrate the link between oral health and overall health by providing free dental hygiene services to members of the public. This now national program sets aside a day during which participating dental hygienists all over Canada provide free oral health care to members of the public who are either unable to afford, or do not have access to, dental hygiene services.
