Regulations enacted under the Dental Hygienists Act of Nova Scotia (2007) and effective May 15, 2009 allow registered and licensed dental hygienists to provide services in a variety of practice settings in addition to a dental office.

Practice settings can include long term care facilities, collaborative practices, multi discipline clinics, mobile services, and/or a stand-alone (storefront) office.

Below is the business contact information for dental hygiene practices owned and operated by registered, licensed practising Nova Scotia dental hygienists (e.g., stand-alone/storefront, mobile). The contact information is listed in alphabetical order, by business name. The practice setting(s), and area they serve, if applicable, are listed below. Each practice welcomes new clients.
