Dental Hygiene

Dental Hygiene encompasses so much more than simply “having your teeth cleaned.”  Being able to recognize, diagnose and treat a patient’s periodontal needs will help them keep their teeth for a lifetime.

The hygienists at Dentists on the Hill not only possess excellent clinical skills but they also have the ability to effectively communicate with their patients while showing a high level of caring and understanding.

Hygiene services include dental prophylaxis (cleaning), scaling and root planning, placement of antimicrobial agents (Arestin ®) along with individualized home-care instruction.  In cases where more extensive treatment is indicated, patients will be referred to a periodontist that our doctors works with for evaluation and treatment.
