All Registered Dental Hygienists in Washington State must receive two years of state-mandated hygiene training along with at least two years of undergraduate work, pass a state board examination, and take continuing education classes each year to maintain their license. By providing education and hands-on training, our hygienists help patients manage their oral health and develop good oral hygiene habits. They also communicate with the doctors about your treatment and oral health and help develop a plan to keep you smiling for a lifetime.
Our dental assistants have graduated from a certified dental assisting program and are well versed in a tremendous amount of procedures, processes, and materials that they encounter each day in the clinic. In addition to assisting the doctor with patient procedures, assistants take X-rays, perform the sterilization of rooms and equipment, track lab cases, order supplies, and enter patient data.
