October was National Dental Hygiene Month and we couldn’t be more excited to spotlight our “Fantastic Four” Hygienists! Did you know that your hygienist plays a very valuable role in the dental office? Yeah she “cleans” your teeth but she is not a “maid” 😉 She is a master at how to care for your teeth to prevent the need for fillings, extractions, and other dental work that you need to see us for. Hygienist responsibilities vary from State to State but here in North Carolina and in our office Brenda, Katie, Kiley and Candice do their best at each of your visits to evaluate your complete oral health along with removing stain, calculus and plaque from the surfaces of your teeth. They take Xrays of your teeth, evaluate and manage your gum tissues, educate you and guide you when it comes to how to care for your teeth and why, as well as, offer guidance about your nutrition and how it plays a large role in your oral health.
Now for the fun! We asked our hygienists the same random questions. We’ve included the questions below with their answers since we are still trying to conquer the art of video editing and it was a little hard to hear their answers in the videos (all videos have been posted on our Facebook and Pinterest pages) 😉 Enjoy!!
