Why Dental Hygiene?

Dental hygiene is all about preventative oral health care – keeping your teeth and gums healthy now to avoid or minimize problems later.

Maintenance of oral health is critical to overall health, and poor dental hygiene has been linked to diabetes, heart disease, and even Alzheimer’s. Oral health problems can also affect speech and nutrition, and have a profound impact on our social and mental well-being.

Something as important as dental hygiene should be accessible to everyone, whether you are insured or not, whether you have a healthy set of teeth or no teeth at all.  Smiling Community Dental Hygiene understands how a healthy smile contributes to a healthy person, and healthy people make strong communities.

When you visit Smiling Community Dental Hygiene, your hygienist will:

  • Assess your overall oral health
  • Create a personalized care plan for you
  • Provide therapeutic treatment
  • Combination of hand and ultrasonic scaling for access above and below the gums
  • Discuss any questions you might have about home care

If anything comes up that is beyond the scope of dental hygiene practice, we will provide referrals to other trusted healthcare professionals.

We invite you to team up with your hygienist at Smiling Community to take action for your oral health and for your overall well-being.
