PostSubject: What do Dental Hygienists do?   Fri Feb 17, 2017 4:56 pm

Most dental hygienists work to prevent medical complications and diseases associated with oral hygiene. Dental hygienists are licensed medical professionals that usually work for a dentist. The tasks that hygienists are legally allowed to perform are determined by local laws and regulations. In some states hygienists are permitted to administer local anesthesia, though this is not the case in every state.Overall, the main tasks of a dental hygienist include cleaning, scaling, root planing, applying dental sealants, and advising patients on proper dental care. Across the globe, almost all dental hygienists must obtain some type of formal training before practicing. The academic degree that dental hygienists receive varies from country to country, though most have the equivalent of an associates degree.
