Our Hygienists

We have highly trained hygienists, who are dedicated to your best oral health and preventive dental care.

We do put an emphasis on preventive dental care, and patients are encouraged to see our hygienists on a regular basis. By good preventive measures, the dental diseases, decay (caries) and gum (periodontal) disease can largely be prevented or at least reduced in severity.
