Dental Hygienists Team
Along with the dentist, our dental hygienists are healthcare professional who are able to offer more than just teeth cleaning services. Our dental hygienists work as part of the Paramount Dental team, performing certain tasks that involve direct patient care.
It is important to note that a dental hygienist has to obtain formal training and education before it is possible to be registered. Generally, most jurisdictions require at least a two-year degree in dental hygiene, as well as a number of science related courses as part of the program. Generally, a hygienist will have taken courses that provide background in oral anatomy, pharmacology, nutrition, and periodontology. Perhaps the single most common group of tasks associated with the profession involves preventive dental care. Gum maintenance is often taken care of by the dental hygienist.
Some examples of the duties that may be performed by our registered dental hygienist are – along with teeth cleanings, the hygienist often engages in root planning, and in educating the patient in general oral hygiene. One of the most common tasks a dental hygienist may be asked to perform is the administration of local anesthesia.
Expanding the range of responsibilities that a dental hygienist may provide as part of the dentist office staff often means patients are seen and treated more quickly than in times past.
