Why should I go to a hygiene spa, if I can just go to the dentist?
At Simply Smile, we don't believe its an either or decision. Everyone should see their dentist at least once a year to have a complete oral exam. However, for ongoing hygiene needs you can enjoy a more relaxed, pampered and gratifying solution. Our Spa offers an atmosphere that enables you a two in one treatment. You can address both your stress and oral hygiene needs at the same time. Scented candles, hot towels, coffee or tea service, plush couches, comfortable chairs, impeccable service and most importantly, a guaranteed smile.
What is the difference in cost?
Since 2007, the CDHO (College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario) has allowed dental hygienists to practice independently with an independent dental hygiene fee guide. This gives hygienists the ability to charge 20-40% less compared to the Ontario Dental Association suggested fee guide for the exact same services offered at your dentist's office.
When patients go see their dentist for their hygiene care appointments, a hygienist is likely to perform the scaling and polishing, just like in our spa. Unfortunately, the cost that is incurred is usually that of the dental fee guide.
