Registered Dental Hygienist

Assessment

At the beginning of the appointment, clients will be asked to answer questions regarding their medical history and any medications they are taking. Client consent forms will be completed before any treatment. Blood pressure is also taken.
An intraoral and extraoral examination is then done. This includes screening for oral cancer where we check your face, neck, mouth, throat and tongue. An assessment of your gums will be conducted. We take measurements of your gums which helps us figure out where you fall in terms of gum disease. A dental screening will be done to detect early signs of tooth decay.
The information gathered during the assessment will help form a treatment plan specific to your needs.  Referrals will be made to other health care professionals as needed.
