WHO WE ARE

We are 100% owned, managed and operated
by Dental Hygienists

Many years ago, we began as a mobile dental hygiene clinic owned by independent dental hygienists who travelled all over the Greater Toronto Area bringing oral care to clients. Our strength came from our desire and willingness to overcome challenges in order to meet the unique circumstances and oral care needs of each individual community and client. Today, at Liberty Dental Hygiene, we remain independently owned and our hygienists continue to bring that same desire and willingness to customize care to your very needs, preferences and expectations.

Your time is precious, and we respect that!

At Liberty Dental Hygiene, we value your time. Our stay-on-time policy ensures that your scheduled time is your appointment time. You will be treated promptly upon arrival and have your appointment completed without delay.

You know what you want, and that's OK!

At Liberty Dental Hygiene, we respect your freedom to make informed choices & choose treatment according to your personal needs, limits, and expectations. After your initial oral dental hygiene assessment, whether you choose a dental scaling, a dental polishing, or a cosmetic teeth whitening to revitalize your smile, it's up to you!

Your life is busy, and we know it!

At Liberty Dental Hygiene, we understand life is busy, and sometimes, you just can’t commit to an appointment weeks or months ahead of time. With our extended hours and open booking, there is no wait-list and you’ll get to see our dental hygienist at a time that is convenient for you.

WHAT WE OFFER

Services

Oral Assessment and a healthy couple

Oral Dental Hygiene Assessments

Monitoring the health of your teeth and gums is important in good overall self-care.

We will conduct a consultation with you to consider factors which may impact your oral health. From here, we will complete a thorough and detailed evaluation of your teeth, gums, and other parts of your mouth such as the tongue, palate, throat, and oral tissue. A careful assessment of the head and neck area including checking the lymph nodes, thyroid region, sinuses, jaw joints, face and lips will also be performed.

The results of your assessment will guide us in helping you understand your oral health and assist you in the development of your very own care plan and choices of treatment.

Scaling

A simple way to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

This is a procedure where the dental hygienist removes harmful dental plaque on teeth surfaces using manual scalers and ultrasonic devices. Dental plaque consists of bacteria, the primary cause of bad breath, dental decay, bleeding gums, gum disease and related tooth loss. Professional removal of dental plaque by a dental hygienist paired with good daily home care is an effective way to treat or prevent the development of these conditions.

teeth polishing and a bright smile

Teeth Polishing & Stain Removal

Make your smile shine!

Consuming various beverages, foods and other products can leave unsightly surface staining on teeth. Professional polishing agents are applied to the teeth using a spinning soft polishing-cup to remove these types of stain. Clients tell us how they love the revitalized, cleaner, shiny look and smooth feel of the teeth after a polishing procedure.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is one of our most requested procedures due to the great demand for youthful, healthy, bright smiles.

The outer enamel layer of our teeth is porous and permeable. Over time, dark staining from foods and beverages, becomes absorbed and trapped beneath the enamel surface resulting in dull, grey or yellow teeth. Once this occurs, regular dental polishing cannot reach the deep staining to restore teeth to their original luster and brightness.

Teeth whitening works with the application of hydrogen peroxide-based agents on the surface of teeth. The product travels beneath the enamel, interacts with the trapped stain and eliminates it, leaving a whiter, brighter and more attractive smile.

As teeth whitening is immensely popular, there are numerous systems available to meet this demand. However, not every product is suitable for every client. It is best to consult a licensed oral care professional to discuss the various teeth whitening formulations, their safety, and their effectiveness.

Book a consultation with our hygienist to determine which of our various teeth whitening systems is right for you!

Teeth Desensitization

Many of us have experienced annoying symptoms of teeth sensitivity from time to time. These can be described as short bursts of mild to intense stabbing sensations coming from the teeth when they are touched, exposed to temperature changes or to different types of foods. Some causes of teeth sensitivity are exposed roots related to receding gums, or worn-down tooth surfaces. Other factors for sensitivity include loss of mineralization in the enamel or even dental decay. Treatments for teeth sensitivity range from regular use of store-bought toothpastes aimed at reducing sensitivity to professional in-office teeth desensitization with a licensed oral care professional such as a dental hygienist. If you are experiencing symptoms of teeth sensitivity, book a consultation with our dental hygienist to uncover the cause of your sensitivity and to choose the treatment that is best for you!

Custom Fitted Sports Guards

For those of us who enjoy playing sports, injuries to the mouth, jaw and head are always a risk. These include chipping, breaking, or loss of teeth, jaw joint damage, and sometimes brain concussion. These injuries are often the result of impact to the lower jaw where the energy force dissipates though the teeth, jaws and skull resulting in pain & recovery time, and even an expensive dental bill. A well fitted sports-guard is your best defense to mouth, jaw and head injuries as the appliance is designed to cushion and absorb the forces of impact reducing your chance of serious trauma. A custom sports guard fabricated by an oral care professional is fitted just for you and provides superior protection over generic/universal store-bought mouth protectors. An ideal guard offers good self-retention in the mouth, covers all teeth in the arch, does not cut or pinch the mouth, and easily allows for speech, swallowing and breathing. Make that appointment with our dental hygienist to get fitted for your custom sports guard. It’s well worth it!

Referral Services

As independent dental hygienists, our practice focuses primarily on dental hygiene care including treatment & prevention of oral disease, maintenance & promotion of good oral health, and cosmetic teeth whitening. If you need dental work not available at our clinic, we will be more than happy to communicate our findings to your current dentist or to refer you to one of our collaborating dentists. Book a consultation with us for a referral to one of our collaborating dental clinics!

OUR PEOPLE

About our Dental Hygienist

Dental Hygienist Lillian Yee

I am a dental hygienist registered with the College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario (CDHO). My relevant educational background includes an Associate of Applied Science (dental hygiene) and a Bachelor of Science (psychology).

I began my career working in general family dentistry and in dental clinics specializing in the treatment of gum disease. I had the good fortune of working along-side many dentists, dental hygienists and other oral care professionals who were exceptionally passionate and skilled practitioners. It was under the mentorship of these dedicated professionals, that I developed and honed my clinical skills and knowledge.

I then moved my practice away from the traditional dentist’s clinic toward a novel and exciting way of providing oral health care known as “independent dental hygiene”. With this new way of practice, came the ability for dental hygienists to provide key components of the dental hygiene appointment without prior authorization from a dentist; essentially, hygienists were now free to work independent of the dentist. This brought vast new possibilities for the profession of dental hygiene, and more importantly, improved choice and access to oral health and dental care for the client.

I created a mobile dental hygiene clinic travelling to individuals and families facing social & economic, physical & developmental or emotional barriers to treatment at the dental office. I met some of the most resilient and amazing people who taught me great life-lessons in cultivating human compassion, acceptance, gratitude and how to truly listen and gain knowledge from each other. I learned how embracing these qualities in my practice could enrich the experience for both myself and my clients.

My latest venture involves bringing independent dental hygiene to residents and businesses at our location in Toronto’s Liberty Village. At Liberty Dental Hygiene, I aim to offer you not only flexibility and freedom of choice, but to also bring together the clinical foundation gained from years of practice, with those invaluable life-lessons, into every appointment.

Best regards,

Lillian Yee, BSc, RDH
