What is a hygienist?
Dental hygienists are specially trained to work with the dentist to give care to patients and can help with your treatment plan. Our hygienist appointments are focused on preventative dental care and treating gum disease. They will show you how to look after your teeth and gums and keep them healthy. An appointment will include a professional clean removing plaque and tartar (referred to as a scale and polish). They will also give advice about diet and preventing tooth decay.
