Dentist in Towson
The hygiene department of Ousborne and Keller consists of two full time hygienists. We consider them to be another set of examining eyes and ears for us. They excel at listening to each patient as they examine them, while compiling necessary and vital information to present to us as we enter the hygiene operatories. It is no wonder, we rely heavily on their years of professional training and experience to keep our patients informed and apprised of any changing situations.
Our hygienists, like all team members of Ousborne and Keller , pride themselves on treating the whole patient, not just their mouth, believing there is a direct systemic link between oral health and the rest of the human body. Our expert hygienists do a comprehensive oral assessment and dental prophylaxis (cleaning) at each visit utilizing the very latest technology and techniques to ensure effectiveness and comfort. They are also well versed in non-surgical periodontal therapy and available adjunctive treatments needed to maintain and enhance oral health.
You will undoubtedly find them to be thorough, professional, empathetic and up to date on the most current trends, techniques and dental therapies.
