Last month we introduced you to the amazing dental assistants at Library Park Dental. Now it’s time to introduce you to our dental hygienists. At Library Park Dental we have some wonderful dental hygienists and we’d like to publicly thank them for the work that they do.

Outside of work she enjoys golfing, bowling, and traveling with her husband. She is a periodontal therapist, a sealant specialist, a prevention specialist, and is certified in anesthesia.

The role of a dental hygienist is varied – and is very important! From taking medical histories (which may indicate susceptibility to various conditions) or x-rays to ascertain the health of your teeth, your dental hygienist is working to help the doctor create a picture of your oral health. At our office, she will clean your teeth and help you to understand how you can best care for your teeth. She may apply sealants, fluoride, or a de-sensitizing agent on recessed areas of your teeth. And she can answer your questions about a wide variety of issues pertaining to your oral health.
Thank you to our dental hygienists for all the work you do to make our patients’ experiences so much better!
