Appointments Begin with a Smile & a Welcome

Begin with a Smile

Having your teeth cleaned by an Independent Dental Hygienist is just like having your teeth cleaned in a dental office, with 2 main exceptions: 1- The dentist doesn’t come in at the end, and, 2- the atmosphere is more relaxed and quiet — no noisy drills to listen to!

Each appointment at Dental Hygiene Haven begins with a Smile and a Welcome plus all the dental hygiene services available in Fort Collins.

I’ll ask how you are, partly because I care about you, and partly because what’s happening in your life effects your overall health and your teeth and gums.

All the usual stuff takes place, starting with updates:

Dental Hygiene Services

Starting With Updates

  • Medical History update including a Blood Pressure check
  • X-rays
  • Exam: Oral Cancer Screening, Gum Disease Exam, and a Filling assessment
  • Teeth Cleaning or Gum Therapy, depending on your Gum Disease status available are:
  • Routine Teeth Cleaning
  • Periodontal Scaling & Root Planing (“Deep Cleaning”)
  • Periodontal Maintenance

Hand instruments and an ultrasonic scaler may be used, and polishing is done. I like to finish with a gum massage using an herbal toothpaste that is refreshing to the gums and just plain feels good.

Also Providing

  • Teeth Whitening Refills
  • Customized Oral Hygiene Instruction (Home Care)
  • Bacterial Testing (Salivary Lab Test)
  • Wellness/Nutrition Program (featuring Standard Process supplements)
  • Dental Consultations (To help you decide whether lots of dental work is really best for you)

Vicky is amazing.  Not only is Vicky a very talented dental hygienist, she is also very caring and compassionate.

Regarding Cavity/Filling Evaluation – I trust that by now I’ve made it clear that I am not a dentist (nor do I play one on TV!) and do not diagnose dental disease.  As I go around each tooth, I will show you holes in your teeth, cracked or broken fillings, or other problems I see. Fort Collins has many skilled dentists.  I strive to understand your personal philosophy of care so I can recommend a dentist to you who matches your philosophy.  The American Dental Association recommends seeing a dentist twice a year for dental exams.
