Hygiene Examination

Your hygiene dental visit is performed by a State of California Certified Registered Dental Hygienist. Our hygienists attend continuing education seminars so they may continue to excel in their profession and provide their patients with the highest quality of care.

The areas examined include the mouth, teeth and gums. We will also discuss your home care techniques and recommend certain products that will assist in your home care program. 

 American Dental Association studies show that 85% of all American adults have some form of gum disease.  Gum disease can lead to bone disease.  No one is immune; children, teens or adults.  Any and everybody can get gum disease.  The only prevention is proper home care techniques, use the correct products and schedule regular dental examinations and cleanings.
