During all appointments for dental hygiene in our Clarkston, WA office, we have your best interest in mind. We always provide a comprehensive experience to ensure all of your needs are met in terms of oral health and comfort. In all areas of care—from your exam, cleaning, and treatment planning—we really do take care of our patients!
First and foremost, Meyers-Folsom Dental Clinic respects our patients’ time. We take great effort to make sure your hygiene appointment begins on time as scheduled. Upon being greeted, we’ll have you complete a full health history. Being respectful of your time and gaining a full understanding of any health concerns before your appointment begins allows our team to be most efficient during your exam and cleaning.
Your appointment will begin with a thorough exam of your entire mouth. This includes an oral cancer screening, and a careful evaluation of the foundation of your teeth and bony structures at every visit. Based on your health history, we’ll also address any concerns or needs you may have right away. Digital x-rays and periodontal charting may also be completed during your exam.
Once your exam is complete, a comprehensive cleaning and treatment plan will be presented with options to meet your individual needs in periodontal and restorative care. This may include removal of tough surface stains using our Prophy Jet, or a deeper cleaning to remove tough calculus and tartar using our ultrasonic scaler. We proudly implement state-of-the-art equipment to make all of our cleanings effective and comfortable, and will gladly offer nitrous oxide if you feel apprehensive.
Our team will help you sort through your treatment options so you can make decisions that will best meet your health needs and your financial budget. We love being able to work with patients to sort through their treatment planning and maximize their insurance benefits!
