What Makes A Good Dental Hygienist? [Photo]

Each dental hygienist here at Dores Dental assists our Longmeadow, MA dentist, Dr. Dores, in various ways. But what exactly is their role when it comes to keeping your smile in top shape? Here are a few things you might expect from our hygienists:

  • Taking digital X-rays and assessing them for oral problems
  • Checking for cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer
  • Cleaning both children’s teeth and adults’ teeth
  • Providing extra decay-fighting protection through sealants and fluoride
  • Gently administering anesthesia through our painless DentalVibe system
  • Answering any questions you have, from how to brush your teeth to what foods to eat that can keep your teeth and bodies healthy
  • Making sure you stay comfortable and relaxed

Ultimately, our friendly hygienists always work toward one goal: making sure you have a healthy smile in a welcoming environment. Contact us today to visit one: 413-241-3995 or via online form.
