Q: Why doesn’t my dentist clean my teeth?
A: While our Winnipeg dentists have the training to clean your teeth, your appointment is a team effort at DITC.
Dental hygienists clean patients’ teeth because of their training in this particular
area of dentistry. Dental hygienists are licensed dental professionals who have specialized education in preventing and treating oral diseases through scaling and patient education, which complements the skill sets of our dentists and dental assistants.
Both the dentist and the dental hygienist are supported by dental assistants who might also be part of your visit if you need x-rays or impressions, for example.
