Here's what Jon has to say on the subject: "Your visit to the hygienist is not just about scraping and polishing those pearly whites! Teaching and monitoring patients regarding their oral health is of utmost importance and is the key in making your dental hygiene appointment easier and more enjoyable.
There are many effective oral care products available which patients are often unaware of. What works well for one may not work for another. I try to supply and demonstrate the most effective products for each patients specific needs.
By regularly monitoring the hard and soft tissues of your mouth I can recommend the best products and treatment for your specific situation. By educating you, the patient regarding the maintenance and control of your oral health, you can look forward to less time in the dental chair and an overall healthier mouth and body."
