Dental hygienists are licensed members of the dental team who are responsible for preventive care and education. They remove calculus and plaque from teeth, apply fluoride and sealants, perform deep cleanings to prevent and treat gum disease and assist the dentist in providing oral health treatment. They also educate patients about proper nutrition and oral hygiene, review and maintain patients' charts and take and develop X-rays.
