October is National Dental Hygiene Month, and we’re proud to celebrate all the work our hygienists do to keep our patients healthy and smiling proudly. That couldn’t be more true as they risked their own health this year and last to do just that.
We are very selective in hiring hygienists because they are the staff members who usually spend the most time with our patients. Our dental hygienists are personable, respectful, and gentle. They also love answering your questions so you know just how to keep your teeth and gums clean. Here’s what one patient said recently about our hygienist Tiffany:
“I met with Tiffany as my hygienist, she was extremely informative with explaining how to take care of my teeth. I could tell she really loves to educate patients on the best way to take care of their teeth. What I really liked was the holistic approach that she explained to me. I had never had a hygienist take so much time with me to answer all my questions about how to take care of my teeth.”

And if you’re in the office this month or on our Facebook page, remember to thank your hygienist for National Dental Hygiene Month!
