Meet the Dental Hygienists at

Brea Family Dental Center

We believe that your periodontal care (management of your gum tissue and bone supporting your teeth) is a very important aspect of your dental care. Regular periodontal care ensures the long-term stability of your teeth, but it also plays an important role in the promotion of excellent overall body health.

Patients diagnosed with Periodontal Disease should be treated according to our Periodontal Treatment Guidelines as soon as it is detected.

Periodontal disease is the main cause of tooth loss in adults. We believe that “patients all deserve to keep their teeth for the rest of their lives!”

Our highly skilled dental hygienists are caring, friendly and well-trained to handle all aspects of periodontal care.
