We’re Celebrating National Dental Hygienist Week. It is from April 4-10th. Have you ever wondered what your Hygienist does? Or what to expect when you visit your favorite Holistic Dentist?
First let’s hear what our patients are saying about our wonderful Hygienist, Nazila:
Patient 1: I love this place! If you’re looking for a dental experience without all the traditional hype, dental trauma and scare tactics ie “you need fluoride” look no further..Dr Nazila has a loving mother approach to your dental hygiene which I value above all.
Patient 2: Dr. Nazila was amazing. Calm, gentle, and thorough with my cleaning. Thanks
Patient 3: Dr. Nazila is super AMAZING! She truly cares about your gum health and puts you first! Thank you for caring so much and helping me understand that my health matters most! I’m all smiles!
Even though Nazila is not a doctor, many of her patients feel she is just like their doctor showing much care and concern for their health. What exactly does a Dental Hygienist do you ask? There are quite a few things, here is a short list:
- Take x-rays of your mouth
- Perform Oral Cancer exam
- Review your medical/dental history
- Discuss good oral hygiene routines
- Give anesthesia
