The Indispensable Role of the Dental Hygienist

The Indispensable Role of the Dental Hygienist

Dental Hygienists play a crucial role in the prevention and treatment of oral diseases which not only affect a patient’s teeth but can impact their overall health.

Regular cleaning appointments allow the Dental Hygienist to perform oral health care assessments that include the review of patients’ health history and evaluation of gum health. Often, they are the first to recognize potential issues and implement preventative measures to circumvent more costly procedures.

As a family dental office, we are committed to the highest quality of care for you and your entire family. This level of care is only possible with the cooperative effort between Dr. Kussman and our Dental Hygienist.
