The Dental Hygienist is a specially trained and skilled dental auxiliary which focuses specifically on prevention. The Dental Hygienist plays an important role by removing deposits on teeth, cleaning, polishing – and most importantly – teaching patients the benefits of maintaining good dental hygiene. Lentini Dental promotes the prevention of dental problems which would otherwise result in more extensive, and expensive procedures.
You will visit our Dental Hygienist prior to all dental check-ups to ensure there are no stains or plaque deposits concealing tooth decay or causing gum disease. With so many different aspects combining to create bad-breath, tooth decay, cavities and gum disease, the role of the Dental Hygienist is of the utmost importance.
