With special focus on preventive dental care.
What is a dental hygienist?
A dental hygienist is a specially trained, licensed dental clinician who focuses on examining patients for signs of oral diseases and carrying out maintenance and preventative dental care. They play a core role in oral healthcare and are mainly concerned with gum health - showing people personal oral care to help keep your teeth and gums healthy. Dental hygienists work closely with dentists to meet the specific needs of patients.
