The staff at Lynhurst Dental are committed to providing the most advanced dental care available.
Our hygienists and assistants work together with Dr. Gauthier to treat and maintain your overall oral health.
A Dental Hygienist is a licensed dental professional who specializes in preventive oral health, typically focusing on oral hygiene. Common procedures performed by hygienists include polishing, scaling and root planing, taking radiographs, placing dental sealants, administering fluoride treatments and providing instructions for proper oral hygiene and care.
Dental Assistants enable the dentist to provide more efficient dental treatment by preparing the patient for treatment, sterilizing instruments, passing instruments during the procedure, holding a suction device, taking dental radiographs, taking impressions and fabricating provisional crowns. The dentist can then focus more time on the procedure and the Dental Assistant is effectively the dentist's extra pair of hands.
A Dental Assistant is a certified dental professional. Dentists provide a wide range of services so it is necessary for their assistants to be well versed in all areas of dentistry.
