Let us take care of the hassle of getting to and from your hygiene appointments.
Each visit is customized to our client. Appointments typically begin with an oral health assessment and oral cancer screening. Scaling is performed to remove hard deposits from your teeth which is key in keeping your gums healthy. Polishing is performed if scaling alone cannot remove all superficial stain. Fluoride varnish is applied as an excellent way to help prevent tooth decay and can also help with sensitivity in some clients. We finish up by reviewing home care techniques to help you achieve and maintain optimal oral health. Referrals are made to other health care providers and dentists as needed.
Fees can vary depending on the current oral condition of the client. Generally fees fall between $100.00-$200.00 for a standard cleaning. These fees can fluctuate based on a few factors:
number of teeth
length of time since your last dental cleaning
consumption of coffee/tea/wine or smoking
regular home care including brushing and flossing
Claims can be sent directly to most insurance providers on your behalf either electronically or by mail. All fees are due at time of service.
