CDHO Code of Ethics
The mission of the College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario is to regulate the practice of dental hygiene in the interest of the overall health and safety of the public of Ontario. To this end, the CDHO had developed and implemented several programs to monitor whether or not its registrants are providing high quality care to the public. The first CDHO Code of Ethics was developed in 1996. As professions evolve so must their guiding principles. The current approach to the Code of Ethics is one that encourages problem-solving and critical thinking.
