Customized Dental Hygiene Charlottesville VA

At Lee Family Dentistry, we believe that healthy teeth and gums are the foundation of a beautiful smile.  Therefore, we place a strong emphasis on patient education, and prevention of decay and periodontal (gum) disease.  Good home care and professional cleanings are key to maintaining healthy teeth and gums.  

When you visit our office, you will see one of our licensed and highly experienced hygienists.  They will work with you to make sure you are up to date on proper brushing techniques, oral health nutrition, and oral cancer prevention.  Together with the dentist, they will screen for gum disease, decay, and oral cancer, and create a customized hygiene plan for you based on your specific oral health care needs.  Depending on your teeth and gums, this plan may include multiple cleanings per year, deep cleaning (scaling and root planing), fluoride treatments, sealants, or referral to a specialist in gum disease (periodontist).

Our hygienists have all been with our office for many years.  They care deeply about our patients, and provide thorough cleanings in a comfortable and inviting atmosphere.
