Our Hygienists are trained to discuss Decay Management Principles and help to prevent both gum disease and dental decay. Our Dental Hygienists identify the factors causing decay, and give recommendations to make the appropriate changes to prevent further decay, meaning less fillings in the future. From these tests our Hygienists are able to tailor a specific Home Care Program that helps you to protect you teeth and gums.  Our Hygienists are trained to perform your Teeth Whitening Procedures.
