Dental Hygiene Exams

A dental hygiene exam is a thorough check of your oral health by a Registered Dental Hygienist. They look at your teeth, gums, tongue, jaw, and other mouth parts to spot any existing or potential issues. The goal is to find problems early, assess overall mouth health, and suggest preventive care or treatments.
