What to expect at your regular hygiene visits... Our amazing hygienists, Julie and Brittney, take excellent care of our patients delivering the highest quality of service during hygiene appointments.

Your typical visit consists of updating your medical history and going over any concerns you may have, take images that you may be due for, screen for oral cancer, tongue ties, sleep concerns, and periodontal disease, cavitron and hand instrument use, polish and floss the teeth, and the doctor will come in to perform an exam. Both Julie and Brittney have received advanced training in laser bacterial reduction offering this service to help patients reduce the level of bacteria in the mouth.
