  • Perform prophylaxis in the absence of periodontal disease or gingivitis.
  • Perform full mouth debridement, either as a first stage gingivitis therapy or to remove interfering calculus to further enable a more accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

    • Associates or Bachelor's degree in dental hygiene.
    • Current Basic Life Support (BLS) and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certificate.
    • Dental hygienists must be willing to partner with the dentist, work well as part of the total dental team and should have good eye sight and manual dexterity, because they use dental instruments within a patient's mouth, with little room for error.

Important health safeguards include strict adherence to proper radiological procedures, infection control protocols and the use of appropriate protective devices when administering anesthetic gas or working in the dental laboratory. Dental hygienists must also wear safety glasses, surgical masks, full arm length gowns/lab coats, and gloves to protect themselves and patients from infectious diseases during all patient care. Open-toe shoes are forbidden, long hair is recommended to be pulled back and finger nails are to be kept short and tidy for all dental hygienists in treatment rooms. #LI-PW1
