Dental Hygiene

Dental hygienists are a vital part of the team that meets the oral and overall health needs of patients. While dental hygienists are best known for cleaning teeth, they do much more.  They:

  • provide treatment for early and moderate gum disease. 
  • take, process, and interpret x-rays - also called "radiographs"
