The dental hygienists at our office in Hickory, NC are responsible for taking dental x-rays, cleaning your teeth, and counseling patients about oral care.
When you come in for a dental appointment, you will almost always be seen first by a dental hygienist. The hygienists are an important part of our operation and a valuable addition to our staff. You can feel confident that your dental hygienist has been rigorously trained and is licensed to do the dental work we have assigned them.
The dental hygienists at our office are responsible for taking dental x-rays, recording your dental history, cleaning your teeth by removing plaque and calculus from your teeth’s surface, applying sealant and fluoride to your teeth to protect them, and counseling patients about oral care. Our dentists are able to serve a higher volume of patients if we have the assistance of a well-trained dental hygienist to do some of the more routine parts of a dental visit, and our goal is to be as available as possible for your dental needs.
A primary goal at Hickory Distinctive Dentistry is to make you feel comfortable for all of your dental work. We recognize that the dentist can be intimidating for many people, and we desire to put you at ease when working with us for your dental care.

We encourage all of our patients to speak up about any concerns they have, so we can help make your dental visit a more enjoyable experience.
