Highlighting Our Hygienists!
Our office takes pride in the four wonderful hygienists on our staff. All of our hygienists graduated from the best dental hygiene schools in the region and are experienced in providing patients with quality care. Some of the services our hygienists are trained in are:
–diagnosing and treating periodontal (gum) disease
–capturing radiographic images (xrays)
–professionally removing built-up plaque and tartar from the surfaces of the teeth
–applying fluoride (strengthens teeth’s enamel)
–applying sealants (a coating to protect molars’ deep grooves from decay)
–counseling patients on homecare and nutrition in regards to their oral health
To keep your smile in tip-top shape, Dr. Suher recommends visiting a hygienist twice a year so she can remove the plaque and tartar from your teeth before it causes decay.
