What is a Dental Hygienist?
Dental hygienists are a registered dental care provider and a clinical operator who also educate patients in oral health. They are trained to help in preventing dental gum disease.
Here at Dental Excellence we have 3 hygienists, which allows us to provide more availability to have your regular hygiene maintenance visits every 6 months. At your hygiene appointment you will be educated on dental health, plaque control, oral hygiene and nutrition. You will have your teeth professionally scaled and polished by one of our very talented hygienists. Brushing and flossing techniques will be shown to you at each appointment to help you with your home care which helps prevent gum disease.
