As a Dental Hygienist, I provide preventative care for our patients including: routine dental cleanings, digital radiographs, intraoral pictures and oral cancer screenings. I also perform more involved procedures such as periodontal screenings, scaling and root planings, and delivery of local anesthetics for patients who require periodontal treatment. My experience in dental hygiene spans 22 years, spending 15 years here at Dr. Armijo’s office. The most interesting and exciting aspect of dentistry is the ability to have access to up-to-date technology, education and staff support to provide all of our patients, young and mature, with the best treatment possible. I enjoy learning about our patients’ needs in order to design a suitable course of treatment. My own personal interests involve spending time with my family (wife and one son), reading, and listening to world music.
