Why should I see the dental hygienist instead of the dentist for my clean?

Dental hygienists are skilled in preventive dentistry and education. They assist dentists in treating patients, but focus solely on the control of oral diseases. They are a registered dental care provider, oral health educator and clinical operator, and are trained to do specific clinical procedures. They are an extension of your dentist and perform preventative and periodontal treatment under your dentist’s supervision.
