The Dental Act empowers the dental profession as the sole providers of dental care for Nova Scotians
The Provincial Dental Board of Nova Scotia is a legislated body mandated to protect the general public interests in matters related to the delivery of dental care.
Dental patients have a right to expect a professional standard of care from their dentists and dental assistants.
Dentists and dental assistants are responsible for reading Dental Board publications to ensure that they are aware of current news and of the Dental Board’s standards, polices and guidelines.
Dentists are available all across Nova Scotia. You do not need a referral to see a general practice dentist. Search for a dentist in your neighborhood now.
