Our hygienists are licensed and highly trained to give you the best possible experience at The Smile Center. They are trained to give dental cleanings, x-rays, laser de-sensitizing, as well as periodontal cleanings. They are also very helpful to give you the information you need so that you are taking proper care of your teeth at home.
