National Dental Hygienists Week is coming up April 4-10. If you’re one of our patients, we hope you will take a moment to pass along your gratitude to your hygienist here!

Our hygienists work diligently to keep your teeth and gums clean and free of disease and decay. They are trained in gentle techniques to keep you as comfortable as possible. Even so, you are welcome to ask for numbing if you have sensitive gums and sedation if you get nervous about dentist appointments (yes, even for cleanings!). We will not judge you for your fear or for the condition of your mouth.

We can say wonderful things about our hygienists, but you don’t have to take our word for it! Here’s what a few of our patients have said:

“The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, from Dr. Le Pera, hygienist, to the staff of the office. Highly recommended!!!!”

“Loved my hygienist Carmen. She gave me lots of helpful tips and didn’t use electric tools to clean. I loved this because I have a lot of sensitivity and the electric tools exacerbates my symptoms.  Which means she listened to my worries and honored them.”

“Very friendly and professional office. Jessica, the dental hygienist, is thorough, and to me, pain-free.”

“Dentist & hygienist are both gentle and professional.”
