It's National Dental Hygienist Week!

NATIONAL DENTAL HYGIENIST WEEK ALLEN TEXAS.png

In celebration of National Dental Hygienist Week, we wanted to share an overview of what these professionals do and what you can expect during your next appointment with your dental hygienist at The Dentist of Allen!

The Role of Dental Hygienists

Dental hygienists are an integral part of any dental team, performing valuable work both for the internal team and most importantly patients!

Typically, you’ll spend a majority of your time with a dental hygienist during your hygiene appointment, as these are the members of our team that often perform initial screenings, take x-rays, manage cleanings, and discuss good oral hygiene with you. They also support the rest of the castle by completing dental charts, documenting important information about your appointment, and assisting with other activities like ensuring patients are reminded of their upcoming appointments.

Ultimately, your Allen, Texas Dentist couldn’t be as effective without a dental hygienist in the office, and your experience definitely couldn’t be the same without them!

What to Expect During Your Dental Appointment

When you come in for your appointment, you’ll first discuss your dental and medical history with a skilled dental hygienist. This ensures that the office is aware of any issues or concerns that may need to be addressed or accommodated.

Next, a dental hygienist will take radiographs, or x-rays, of your teeth if needed, letting the dental professionals in the office get an inside look at the health of your teeth and jaw.

Dental hygienists also handle your cleaning, ensuring that calculus and plaque are properly removed from the surface of your teeth. They may also apply preventative materials, like fluoride treatments or sealants, if they are needed, and can discuss the impact of nutrition and proper oral hygiene on your teeth and gums.

At times, a dental hygienist may even recommend oral care products, like toothbrushes or toothpaste, that may suit your needs. A dental hygienist is usually the one to give you a post-care goodie bag full of product samples and a new toothbrush.

After their work is complete, they invite your Allen Dentist in to review your information and perform a comprehensive exam to see if there are any signs of decay or gingivitis. If an issue is detected, your dentist will recommend a custom treatment plan to address the concerns and get your teeth and gums into the best shape possible.

Ultimately, our dental hygiene team is the backbone of our Allen dental office. So, during National Dental Hygienist Week, make sure to take a moment and thank them for all that they do in partnering with patients in prevention for your overall health.

Five reasons to talk to your dentist

dentalimplantsallentx.jpg

Whether you have one tooth affected, two or more missing, or most or all teeth affected, we have a restorative solution for you! Here are five reasons it’s time to talk a doctor about Dental Implants in Allen, Texas!

1. You are avoiding certain foods because they are too difficult to eat.

Getting a tooth replaced brings back your full chewing function so you can go back to enjoying the foods you love.

2. One or several teeth in your mouth are missing or going to be removed.

A dental restoration at the right time can prevent further oral health complications that could affect remaining healthy teeth.

3. You are suffering from headaches or migraines since you've lost one or several teeth.

Missing teeth can often affect the positioning of your other healthy teeth, causing a misalignment of your teeth and of the upper and lower jaws, and stiffness in the muscle and joints.

4. Your facial silhouette has changed since losing one or more teeth.

A lack of teeth can severely reduce the density of jawbone because it is no longer stimulated when chewing. This leads to a shrinking jawline, which makes you look older than you really are.

5. You are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth.

Discolored, uneven, and damaged teeth can affect your smile and facial profile. Ask us for options to restore your smile!

Restoring and replacing your teeth to the best of appearance and natural function can help you to enjoy life to the fullest!

Give us a call to learn more about your options with Dental Implants!

WE'RE SUPER, BECAUSE OF YOU!

DAVID BISHOP, DDS

The most recent December issue of the Texas Monthly Magazine has listed "Super Dentists" throughout the state in a directory fashion. Since David R Bishop DDS is the representative for TheDentistofAllen.com, we have been chosen again and are listed in their directory under my name but we have never invested in an ad for their issues.

We, at TheDentistofAllen.com, would like to identify a point that is extremely clear to us and needs to be said.

Our patients are the absolute best patients in the state of Texas.

That doesn't imply there are perfect teeth in every mouth. It implies our patients laugh and smile with us when we work.

We never have to wait on a patient for their appointment and they never wait on us. For those of you reading this that have been late to an appointment, remember that you always called us and told us what the blasted traffic is like on Hwy 75. We have cancellations at the last minute
and I remember when I had to cancel patients when I left to meet my wife delivering my children at the hospital. We understand the need for compassion in such an uncomfortable service. It is amazing the unsolicited apologies that pull on our heartstrings; because we know.

We have discussions about costs like I had for my $85,000 knee when I broke it skiing. Hey, we're all human and we're all looking for equitable value and certainly extremely skilled hands. All of our patients are second to none from our point of view. We scour the earth delivering the latest techniques and materials for everything we do because that's what we do and you would do it for us.

I've recently added new employees to my staff and their universal comment is how wonderful the patients are at our office, much different from where they came. That is a huge reason for my staff's long tenure working here.

We want to thank every one of our patients for being the absolute
best and extend an invitation to anyone that would like to join us at
TheDentistofAllen.com; everyone is welcome.

TAYLOR, RDH

image1.jpeg

Hey y’all!

My name is Taylor and I graduated from Dental Hygiene school in Amarillo, Tx in May of 2018.

I grew up in small town, Snyder, Texas, but the city was calling my name! I have 4 sisters and 2 pups, Theo and Stella. In my spare time I enjoy working out, reading, being outdoors in the sunshine and watching sports!

For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated with the dental office and have always known hygiene was what I wanted to do when I grew up! Being a hygienist gives me the opportunity to serve others by helping them to be happy with the smile they see in the mirror, to create lasting relationships with patients, to educate patients, and to always continue learning.

So far, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at The Dentist of Allen and I look forward to being a part of this team for a while!
