Dental hygienists are licensed professionals who specialize in preventive oral care. By conducting regular, comprehensive tooth cleanings that involve removing calculus and plaque (hard and soft deposits), the hygienist helps patients avoid tooth decay and gum disease. Just as importantly, the dental hygienist can teach patients oral hygiene strategies that help them maintain oral health. This very important member of the dental team also screens for oral cancer and counsels about good nutrition that plays a big role in preserving tooth health. Dental charting, taking x-rays, and reviewing health history are but a few of the other valuable tasks that dental hygienists are trained to perform with the goal of furthering patient health and awareness.

Our dental hygienists are oral health care professionals who provide educational, clinical, and therapeutic services to our patients. At DISTINCTIVE SMILES OF DUBLIN, oral health is a long-term commitment we share with each patient and we encourage you to make us aware of any special needs you may have.

P.S. If patients have questions about their oral health that require a detailed explanation, they are encouraged to ask the dental hygienist.
