Sally Lloyd, BScDH, Registered Dental Hygienist and owner of Lifetime Smiles Dental Hygiene Clinic, is a graduate of the dental hygiene school at Dalhousie University in Halifax, and is originally from Nova Scotia. She has been practicing hygiene at dental clinics in Calgary for more than 9 years, after working at dental clinics in NS for 10 years.
Sally completed a Degree Specialization Program in Dental Hygiene through University of Alberta, where she has obtained her local anaesthetic certification and nitrous oxide training. She is certified to administer and treat patients under nitrous sedation, which is very comforting to nervous patients who have had difficult appointments in the past.
Sally Lloyd is also an authorized dental hygienist prescriber in Alberta and as such is authorized to prescribe a limited number of prescription medications.
An active member of the International Association of Orofacial Myology with training in myofunctional therapy, Sally treats individuals with tongue thrusting habits, abnormal swallow patterns, thumb and/or finger sucking habits and other myofunctional disorders.
Attending and participating in continuing education is important to Sally, as is giving back to the community locally and globally. Visit some of her photos from the Dental Mission to Venezuela that she went on in January 2009 with KIA – Kindness in Action – a volunteer based service group in Alberta.
Owning a dental hygiene clinic in Calgary allows Sally to choose to be more involved with community service and pursuing dental hygiene research – in which she has a strong interest. Staying current in dental hygiene treatments and procedure is very important and required of all staff at Lifetime Smiles. Lifetime Smiles participates annually in Gift From The Heart – a day of no cost dental hygiene treatment.
Sally loves to run, and combines raising money for charities with this passion by participating in causes such as CIBC Run for The Cure annually, and the Nike Woman’s Marathon to raise money for Lymphoma and Leukemia.
