I had an irrational fear of the dentist for the majority of my life and no health insurance for the last few years, which led to me needing semi-extensive work done; I randomly chose this office based on what was in-network for my insurance and convenience of location. I've never left a review for anything before, but the excellent service I have received from this office has left me feeling obligted to. Everyone from the ladies at the front desk to the Doc himself have been absolutely outstanding. They are very flexible with payments, and allowed me to create my own plan of action based around my financial situation, work schedule, and what I considered to be my top priorities/concerns after explaining what all I needed done. Horrible experiences with previous dentists got me into this situation, but this office has made me very conscious of my health, hygiene, and appreance. I honestly cannot express how thankful I am for them and how highly I would recommend them.

Tips & Advices
Dental hygienists are required to attend continuing education classes, and the amount of continuing education that is needed varies from state to state. Depending on the state, dental hygienists must renew their licenses every one, two, or three years. A certain amount of continuing education is necessary to successfully have this license renewed.
Dental hygienists can perform teeth whitening. This procedure is used to brighten a discolored smile. It's possible to whiten teeth at home, but you'll often get faster results if you turn the process over to a trained and skilled professional. Dentists and dental hygienists often use stronger bleaches to whiten teeth than those that are available to consumers over the counter.
The costs associated with getting the education required to become a dental hygienist depends on the type of degree chosen. For an associate's degree, expect to spend an average of $22,000. For a bachelor's degree, the average cost rises to $36,000. For a master's degree, it would take an additional $30,000 on top of the costs associated with getting a bachelor's degree.
It takes a minimum of two years to become a dental hygienist. This is the time required to obtain the associate's degree that qualifies them for licensing in a particular state. After obtaining a degree, they'll need to pass national, state, and regional exams to begin working as a dental hygienist.
The are certain key differences between a dental hygienist and a dental assistant. A dental assistant performs tasks such as disinfecting instruments, managing patients' dental records, and assisting dentists during procedures. Dental hygienists perform a more advanced set of tasks, such as polishing teeth and removing tartar, plaque, and stains.
