My hygiene team has been together a very long time. Patients always remark how thorough and gentle their cleanings are. Because they’re so skilled and efficient, they are able to remove more plaque without discomfort. And their chairside manner is fabulous.
The registered dental hygienists here at Beautiful Smiles each have numerous years of experience:
Kim – Registered Dental Hygienist
Kim has been working with Dr. Pollack for more than 33 years! That’s 33 out of 37 total years in the field of dentistry.
