Meet Our Hygienist Team

Our hygienists perform the services our patients require so they are able to achieve and maintain optimum oral health such as thorough, gentle cleanings and procedures for gum disease prevention and treatment.

Providing our patients with oral health education is also a big part of their job. They allow our patients to be prepared as well as active participants in their goal for excellent oral health.
