Our licensed dental hygienists bring a wealth of expertise to our practice. They are our resident experts in the field of periodontal health. During dental visits they update health histories, take any necessary x-rays, and evaluate our patients’ periodontal health. The hygienists perform oral cancer screenings and dental cleanings, and they provide periodontal therapy when necessary. They are committed to providing our patients with the most comfortable and thorough hygiene care available. Helping our patients maintain periodontal health and general wellness are their priorities.
