Ricki Weissbach

Born and raised in the Okanagan I have move around to many different locations in BC before settling in my little town of Cedar just south of Nanaimo.
I have been a registered dental hygienist since 2012 and completed my schooling in Prince George. During the last 7 years in private practice working under a number of amazing dentists (from Fort St John to our beautiful Island), I have noticed a need that is only being partially met. People want more affordable and easier access to dental hygiene therapy. A dental hygienist with his/her own practice runs under the CDHBC fee guide which is a bit lower than the fee guide used by most private practice offices. We are also very flexible for hours in which we work and take insurance from all insurance companies. Every patient still needs to find a dentist to do an exam once a year between cleanings as we deal with gum health and deposit/stain removal and not decay and other internal tooth issues that can arise. I absolutely love my job. I became an independent hygiene practitioner to offer value while making dental hygiene accessible to everyone.
