CCOH takes pride to employ qualified staff who are focused on providing the best possible care to all clients. Students, in their final year of Dentistry or Dental Hygiene also take great measures to provide high standards of care.
Our entire staff of dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants meet all Canadian certification and licensing requirements and are committed to gaining the latest and most current knowledge and skills. In addition to our regular clinic providers, CCOH utilizes the services of dental specialists including an Orthodontist, Oral Surgeon, Pediatric Specialist and locum dentists.
Dentistry and dental hygiene students
The majority of our clinics accommodate students in providing a community outreach experience during the academic school year. Similar to medical training facilities, patients at CCOH have the right to decline treatment from dental and dental hygiene students. Only where patients or powers of attorney have provided written consent, do students take part in providing treatment.
We feel strongly that the calibre of training and education maintained at the Dr. Gerald Niznick College of Dentistry including the direct supervision provided through CCOH clinics by licensed dentists and specialists, and registered dental hygienists, students are competent to provide clinical dental and dental hygiene procedures.
Safety and sterilization
We follow strict infection control policies and standards set by the Dr. Gerald Niznick College of Dentistry and the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority.
