Making Dental Care Accessible For Everyone In The Grande Prairie Area

Maintaining a beautiful smile shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. That’s why our fees are less than the Alberta Fee Guide. We also offer direct billing to your dental insurance provider.

We are an independent dental hygiene practice that offers an alternative to traditional dentistry. It is our belief that preventative dental care should be accessible to everyone. To The Root Dental Hygiene offers affordable dental hygiene solutions, even those without coverage can maintain their  proper oral health.

What Is An Independent Hygiene Practice?

At To The Root Dental Hygiene our focus is on oral health education and prevention of oral diseases. We provide dental hygiene care, and refer patients requiring restorative work to their dentist of choice.

Why Choose an Independent Dental Hygiene Practice? 

As a consumer, you have the choice of where and who provides your care. We provide individualized dental hygiene care plans that maintain your values.

We form relationships with our clients. By working with the same clinician with consistent appointments, we can easily detect changes in your dental health, and provide personalized care.

Do I Still Need A Dentist?


It is optimal to have your dental hygiene care met at this clinic and see your dentist for the restorative work at their office.

Dental Hygienists in Alberta are not required to be supervised by a dentist; they have the broadest scope of practice in Canada. For a history of the profession in AB, please go to the CRDHA website.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

Since opening my practice in 2019, Teeth Whitening or Bleaching is one of the main questions I get asked about. More so, than when I worked in a traditional dental setting. As a provider, I felt like I did not want to recommend it because I had heard such terrible stories of post operative sensitivity from clients before. Jump to January 2021, and I began to investigate different products and more courses on teeth whitening, so I felt like I had enough information to provide people with, so they can make their own decisions on if they want to try teeth whitening. If you are considering a tooth whitening treatment, then I strongly suggest talking to a dental provider because they will advise you based on the conditions in your mouth, but in case you want a little more information, then I’ve put together some answers to some questions that I get asked.

The Polish

I had a fellow dental hygienist ask me to write on this topic. One of the main purposes of polishing is to remove extrinsic/external stain.
