NBCDH- Directives May 20, 2020

We are pleased to announce that the NB College of Dental Hygienists Directives are now completed. Click https://www.nbcdh.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/NBCDH-Interim-Directives-May-2020-ENG.pdf to access the directives. All dental hygienists are required to read these directives prior to return to practise.

A reminder to all registrants that the New Brunswick Dental Society has indicated that no preventative dental hygiene care is to be offered in dental practices before June 1, 2020. This date remains into effect. Dental hygienists can provide any other services that are non-preventative in nature if they are in compliance with these directives.

Independent dental hygiene practice owners do not fall under this timeline requirement. You may open your practice if you are following these directives and have developed your operational plan as per the NB Public Health recommendations.

Again, we take this opportunity to thank all council/committee members who devoted numerous hours during these past weeks towards the development and approval of these directives.
