Hygienists today are highly trained professionals who provide an integral role in the dental health of their patients. In Georgia, a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH) must graduate from an accredited dental hygiene school with a program of at least two years in length and pass the National Hygiene Board exam. Once these are successfully completed, the RDH then takes the Southeast Regional Dental Boards, which are primarily clinical exams using real patients. After passing the examinations, the hygienist must then register with the Georgia State Dental Board before practicing.
Our team includes Registered Dental Hygienists with special training, education and experience in the care of cosmetic dental work. Our Aesthetic Dental Hygienists have extensive post-graduate training in courses such as advanced hygiene at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, the PAC-Live aesthetic continuum in San Francisco, and The Hornbrook Group. In fact, they regularly attend as many continuing education courses in a year as most dentists are required to.
As such, they perform hygienic cleanings, as well as scaling and root planing procedures with attention to the special needs of porcelain veneers and other cosmetic dental materials. They also have expertise in the latest whitening techniques, periodontal and soft tissue management, home care education, and preventive tooth and gum care. Our hygienists place a special emphasis on providing these hygienic services with “TLC” and gently responding to the individual needs and preferences of every client.
We believe a healthy smile is the strongest foundation for a beautiful smile. Therefore, your periodontal care is of utmost priority. We customize cleanings to properly care for your specific periodontal (gums & bone) needs. Whether a six-month or more frequent cleaning or full periodontal therapy, our hygienists will always strive to great treatment while maintaining your absolute comfort.
