During a dental oral hygiene consultation, a Hygienist plays an essential role and works along with a dentist to educate people about gum and teeth health. They are skilled and trained to perform teeth cleaning, scaling, polishing and removing stains that often appear due to our busy lifestyle and inconsistent diet.
