Our Dental Hygienists

Our dental hygienists take great pride in giving your child individualized care during regular checkups and cleanings. In addition to polishing your child’s teeth and examining the health of their gums, our hygienists will also give you all the information you need to keep your child’s teeth healthy at home.
