Dental Hygiene Team

Many major health issues and diseases can start in your mouth, through periodontal disease. And dental hygienists are the first line of defense against them — they’re a critical factor in keeping communities healthy.

That’s because hygienists do far more than clean your teeth. While handling important tasks like precise scaling of roots, they’re on a constant lookout for a variety of health issues that are linked to gum disease — issues that can be treated far more effectively when caught early. Our hygienists have detected everything from heart disease to oral cancer through thorough examination and cleaning.

Of course, they’re also highly skilled at taking great care of your teeth, and helping you do the same. Our hygienist team ensures that every patient is well-educated about oral health, while also managing your comprehensive periodontal therapy. They don’t consider their job done until they send you on your way, feeling your best and sporting a fresh, confident smile.
