Recognizing Dental Hygienists

October is National Dental Hygiene Month and I would like to take a moment to recognize our dental hygienists and celebrate the work they do. They play a critical role in providing care to our patients and are dedicated to keeping patients’ mouths healthy.

National Dental Hygiene Month is designed to increase awareness of how proper dental hygiene is crucial to maintaining a healthy mouth and healthy body. This year, the focus is on four daily routines that can help people maintain healthy smiles: brush, floss, rinse, and chew.

While we can all do our part to take care of our own mouths, there is still no substitute for regular dental care, and hygienists are an indispensable part of the dental team. To dental hygienists here at the school and everywhere else, we want to say thank you!
