Our Hygienists

At Grove & Platt Dental Associates, P.L.C. our dental hygienists clean your teeth, examine your mouth for signs of oral diseases such as gingivitis, and provide other preventative dental care. They make sure your pearly whites are in tip-top shape for the dentists before your professional dental exam. They can also educate you on ways to improve and maintain good oral health. They will offer solutions for better brushing, flossing and more!
