Dental Hygienist

Dental hygienists are licensed professionals who remove plaque and polish patients’ teeth during routine checkups, screen patients, review oral health history, use x-ray machines to take pictures of the teeth for dental analysis, and teach appropriate brushing and flossing techniques. Hygienists work closely with people, and often see patients on their own and direct their own tasks and routines.
