Your Dental Office
heather the hygienist
Most of my patient's questions and upsets come from misinformation or confusion about what should happen in the dental office.  Questions like "why can't I just have my teeth cleaned without seeing the dentist?" and "why do you have to take xrays on me?" are only the tip of the iceberg.  I hope to set you up to win with your dental office by answering as many of those questions here in this section.  Don't forget--you can always go to "contact" and ask me personal questions that I can answer directly.
The office will consist of a front office staff, a back office staff (the dental assistants), and the dentist and hygienist.  These people are all highly trained and will be able to answer your questions along the way regarding your treatment and your oral health.
Let's start with what to expect when you visit your dentist for the first time.
