Brenda MacNeil – Registered Dental Hygienist/Founder

 Brenda graduated from Durham College in 1985 as a Certified Dental Assistant. After working for numerous years in that field, Brenda decided she would like to go after her true passion and become a Registered Dental Hygienist. She worked in several dental offices across the GTA for numerous years, gaining valuable experience and insight into her profession.

On September 1, 2007 the Ontario legislature facilitated increased public access to dental hygiene services by proclaiming the amendment to the Dental Hygiene Act, 1991.  This means that Brenda MacNeil as a “self-initiated”, Registered Dental Hygienist is now able to pursue her dream of opening her own Independent Dental Hygiene Office, creating the launch of “FRESH Dental Hygiene Care” at 20 John St in Downtown Port Hope, ONTARIO

Being a local resident of historic Port Hope, Brenda MacNeil believes that everyone deserves a healthy smile, regardless of their financial or physiological situation and promises to work very hard at providing more affordable and professional dental hygiene care to her community.

She is a member of The Canadian Dental Hygienists Association , as well as the IDHA (Independent Dental Hygienists Associates). Furthermore, Brenda is also a member of the Ontario Dental Hygienists Association and the COLLEGE OF DENTAL HYGIENISTS OF ONTARIO.

Keeping current in dental hygiene practice and procedures is something that Brenda and fellow associates take to heart by attending continuing education courses and seminars related to her field in dental prevention and treatment.

Our Independent practice is very proud to participate in the annual “Gift from the Heart” Event - providing no cost dental hygiene care to those who would other wise not be able to access care due to financial reasons.  For more information regarding this event – please give the office a call at (905) 800-0288.

This is one small way that Fresh Dental Hygiene Care can give back to our community.

Brenda has recently welcomed Marsha Reid (Registered Dental Hygienist) & Natalie Wood (Registered Dental Hygienist) to join her at “Fresh” to offer their expertise as well as further flexibility in hours and scheduling. They are dedicated hygienists who are very passionate about their profession and are now accepting new clients.

“FRESH Dental Hygiene Care” is VERY proud to announce that it has been chosen by the Chamber of Commerce and our clients to not only be nominated but also WINNING the prestigious BUSINESS EXCELLENCE  ”Customer First” AWARD!

This is an incredible honour!

FRESH will continue to strive to offer the community and our patients the very highest standard of care. Thank-you for this wonderful acknowledgment!
