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.

Registered Dental Hygienist & Owner
I was raised on the west coast of Canada, Vancouver Island and graduated with a 3-year Dental Hygiene Diploma that includes a local anesthetic certification from Vancouver Island University in 2013. Immediately after completing my education, I relocated to Grande Prairie.
I am working towards a Bachelor of Health Science through Thompson Rivers University. I am passionate about being an active member in the community, advocacy, and the future of dental hygiene. In the past, I have participated in volunteering dental hygiene services at different clinics in Grande Prairie as well as in India.
