USER GUIDE FOR DENTAL HYGIENISTS The content, organization and management of dental hygiene care is guided by the principles of accessibility for all Canadians to comprehensive oral health care and the promotion of oral health as an integral component of general health. The purpose of this Fee Guide is to provide guidance to dental hygienists in Ontario in setting the fees that they charge for their professional services. It is a guide only; adherence to the guide is not obligatory. Each dental hygienist will set his or her fees to reflect practice realities and local circumstances and requirements. Dental hygienists must follow their code of ethics and standards of practice when determining the value of a dental hygiene service. This Fee Guide uses the CDHA National List of Service Codes© that has been produced by the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association (CDHA). The CDHA states that the National Dental Hygiene System of Service is not intended for use by dental hygienists employed within traditional dental offices or in provinces where this type of public access to dental hygiene care has not been legislated. Dental Hygiene Claim Form To protect themselves from copyright infringements, it is important that all Ontario dental hygienists who are submitting insurance claims use either the standard dental hygiene claim form attached to this Fee Guide and available on the ODHA website or if they are members of CDHA, the CDHA Dental Hygiene Claim Form. Review ODHA will periodically review the suggested fees and will submit any suggestions for the coding system to the CDHA so it can take these under advisement in its own review. Members are encouraged to submit their evidence-based feedback to the ODHA in writing. Members and third parties are reminded that the suggested fees contained in the Fee Guide were prepared by the Ontario Dental Hygienists’ Association to provide a guideline of fees considered to be fair and reasonable. The suggested fees are a guideline only. The suggested fees are not binding on any dental hygienist or third party billing for dental hygiene services, and there is no obligation to follow the suggested fees in the Fee Guide.
