Our practice is incredibly fortunate to have 3 highly trained and knowledgeable hygienists who help our patients smile bright! Christa and Madeline have been with us since 2015 and Chelsea joined us in 2017. They all enjoy getting to know each of our patients individually and helping them maintain a healthy and confident smile. In 2021 we also added Shirley as a Hygiene assistant. She has been instrumental in getting our patients seated in a timely manner, taking photographs and radiographs, and helping your hygiene visit flow smoothly.
Our hygienists do so much more than “just a cleaning” for our patient family! At each visit, our patients are screened for oral cancer. Our hygienists will also evaluate you for signs of periodontal disease, and screen you for signs of decay, wear, and cracks in your teeth. You can be confident that any issues will be identified early at your hygiene visit. This gives us the opportunity to create a solution that is much less invasive than waiting until you are having pain or discomfort. Our hygiene team has done a great job at integrating photos into our visits as well, so that our patients have the opportunity to see what we see.
Next time you are in our office, tell your hygienist thanks for all they do!
