Today, we want to talk to you about what you should be looking for when you go in for a new patient appointment at a dental office and what you should expect from your dental hygienist.
This is very, very important because a lot of people don't realize that the dental hygienist is the first set of eyes that will look at you overall.
A dental hygienist should always read your medical history and go over with you thoroughly. A lot of you may be on some medications that affect the gums and the teeth. This is very important because we want to stop any potential dental infections or periodontal disease.
So if your dental hygienist isn't looking at your medical history and looking at you as a whole person instead of just your teeth, then you need to make sure that they are.
Enjoy today's episode.
