Dental Hygienists

The North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners licenses our Dental Hygienists. We know that healthy, non-bleeding gums and excellent supporting bone are just as critical to long-term dental health as the condition of the teeth themselves. The best way to protect and maintain the supporting structures for life is to have one of our hygienists clean your teeth regularly and implement preventive measures.
