We schedule 1 hour for adult patients and 1.5 hours for Periodontal /Scaling and Root Planning.
Each hygienist has an assistant that is responsible for assisting with x-rays and polishing teeth, while the hygienist scales. The assistant and hygienist work together to provide quality dental hygiene services to the patient.
No. We do not ask you to clock out if your patient fails an appointment. If your schedule starts to fall apart, we ask that you work the recall list to help fill the schedule.
Most of our clinics have a hygienist who is designated as the numbing hygienist. You will be required to provide local anesthetic to patients receiving restorative care. You may help sterilize instruments, clean rooms, seat patients, take xrays, and provide hygiene procedures while the patient waits for treatment.
Most of our hygiene kits have most commonly used instruments. We also have periodontal kits. If there is an instrument you desire, let your office manager know.
