What is a Hygienist?

Years ago, patients would go to a dentist's office only when a tooth hurt. However, we believe in the theories of modern dental care which do not support the old premise of "When it hurts   fix it".  Through proper preventive care and regular checkups, we believe that it is highly likely that most of our patients can expect to keep all of their teeth for many years to come.
