Our Registered Hygienists work in conjunction with the dentists to prevent and treat dental disease to help keep your mouth and you healthy.
The dental hygienists are registered to clean your teeth, evaluate your oral health and discuss with you the importance of caring for your teeth and gums at home. They can also help explain the relationship between your oral health and your total body health.
The dental hygienist may do a basic exam of your teeth and gums, and will inform your dentist about the results of the exam.
Our Registered Dental Hygienists may take X-rays, take dental impressions, clean and polish, desensitize your teeth, and apply fluoride to your teeth.
