Amending Spousal Treatment Laws for dental hygienists

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


Registered Dental Hygienists are an integral part of individuals health care team. We provide oral care to all individuals, except our spouses. Our spouses are forbidden to see us because of an old law prohibiting this. This leaves them with no choice but to potentially see a provider they do not want to see because they have no other choice. This strips them if their basic human right to chose a health care provider they want. Recently a dental hygienist in Ontario, Alexandru Tanase, has lost his licence/registration to practice for five years and this is unacceptable because he was providing high quality of care to his wife. This needs to stop and the government needs to see this law as antiquated and ridiculous. Please sign this petition so that our spouses have the rights they deserve. Thanks everyone.
