Mobile dental hygiene practices are an innovative way to bring dental hygienists, dentists, and dental care to you! 

No need to search for a "dentist near me" when we come to you, wherever you are in BC. Get your teeth cleaning, dental examination, dental x-rays, polish, fluoride, and more in your own home to ensure a comprehensive, patient-focused, and non-restrictive way of accessing your dental care. We even take care of the direct billing with insurances to make your dental appointments easy and comfortable. 

Our independent dental hygiene practitioner and principle hygienist, Jackie Tong, travelled into northern BC during her university studies and met many youths in rural areas. She was told stories about having no access to dental care, needing to drive hours and hours out of town to see a dentist, and how most of the community requested teeth extractions so they could get dentures instead! It broke her heart to learn about these health disparities. She decided to start a mobile dental hygiene practice to increase accessibility to oral health care across the province, breaking barriers to what should be a basic human right. Thank you for your support in our endeavors!
