Absolutely not! Our hygienist, Rachel, is kind and compassionate. She will look at your teeth and gums and discuss your home care habits and practices with you. If the amount of plaque around your teeth and gums puts you at risk for periodontal disease or tooth decay, she will suggest some alternative methods to keep these areas clean. Instead of yelling at you at each visit, she will discuss her findings with you and provide suggestions for how to keep your gums healthy.
