October is National Dental Hygiene Month. National Dental Hygiene Month is an effort to celebrate the work of dental hygienists and to help raise awareness of good oral health.
In our office, our dental hygienists are an integral part of our team. We are fortunate to have 3 wonderful dental hygienists. Each of our dental hygienists is very dedicated and really cares about the well-being of their patients. We would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to and introduce you to all three of our hygienists.
