Transforming Smiles with RDHAP Dental Hygiene Services

Experience personalized dental hygiene care that prioritizes your oral health and overall well-being.


Oral Health Assessment and preventive treatments

Our RDHAP dental hygienist offers personalized care and flexible scheduling, ensuring you receive the highest quality dental hygiene treatment.

Assessments, Oral Cancer Screening

Assessments are conducted at the start of every appointment. This includes a screening for oral cancer, an evaluation of oral hygiene, and an assessment of the risk for cavities. Periodontal measurements are completed annually or bi-annually. Intra-oral pictures and X-rays are taken as needed.

Adult and Child Prophylaxis (Cleaning)

When it comes to oral hygiene, regular brushing and flossing may not be enough to remove plaque buildup and tarter above the gum line, this is why it is important to have your teeth cleaned. Dental prophylaxis is a preventive cleaning procedure that can help eliminate this buildup and prevent further complications. However, this procedure is not recommended for patients with significant sub-gingival deposits, and bleeding gums with periodontal pockets over 4mm. If you are a suitable candidate for dental prophylaxis, it is recommended that you schedule a healthy recall visit every six months to maintain good oral health.

Periodontal Maintenance

Periodontal maintenance is a type of cleaning that is crucial for clients who have undergone periodontal treatment, such as scaling and root planing (surgical or nonsurgical). Since the bacteria that leads to periodontal disease tend to repopulate every ninety days, a more frequent recall is necessary to help maintain and prevent further disease and destruction. To focus on the problem areas, it is recommended to have periodontal maintenance every three to four months.

Scaling and Root Planing

When it comes to dental hygiene, a deep cleaning procedure, also known as scaling and root planing, is essential. It involves removing plaque, tartar, and bacteria from below the gum line in periodontal pockets that are 5mm and above. This helps prevent the progression of periodontal disease and ultimately, tooth loss. While there is no cure for periodontal disease, the deep cleaning procedure and frequent periodontal maintenance can help control most patients' conditions.

Fluoride Application

Topical fluoride is a treatment that is applied to teeth to help strengthen enamel and prevent cavities. It also helps with tooth sensitivity. Fluoride works by remineralizing enamel and inhibiting bacterial metabolism, which reduces the growth of plaque bacteria. This treatment is recommended for clients who are at high risk for cavities, tooth sensitivity, and recession.

Silver Diamine Fluoride

Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) is a noninvasive and painless way to treat tooth decay and tooth sensitivity. It is a great option for treating small cavities. It is also a great option for patients who have limited access to care, or other barriers.

Oral Hygiene Instruction and Nutritional Counseling

Individualized oral hygiene instructions are provided based on the specific needs of each person. For mobile clients receiving in-home care, we provide correspondence and guidance to their caretakers and family members.

Nutritional counseling is offered to clients who exhibit risk factors of decay and erosion. Good diet and nutrition can help prevent and reduce the risk of oral diseases.

In Home Mobile Care

As an RDHAP we are licensed to provide dental hygiene care to clients in the comfort of their own homes. This service is specifically designed for those who find it difficult to access dental care in a traditional office setting. Our mobile dental unit is brought directly into your home for ease and convenience while still offering the same level of compassion and professional care received in a dental office.

Product Recommendation

Choosing the right product from various options available on the market can be a challenging task. From electric toothbrushes to waterpiks, floss, and toothpaste for cavities and sensitivity, it's crucial to understand the individual needs of each client before recommending any product.

My wife recently used Elaine's mobile hygiene service. Elaine is very thorough, compassionate & professional. We highly recommend her service for the convenience of our residents here at Silvergate.

Mr. Bell

I am so excited to share my experience at Elaine Hubbard RDHAP Dental Hygiene Practice. What a great concept. I was immediately attracted to the idea of a private dental hygiene practice. It put me at ease knowing that I did not have to feel anxious about going into a dental office for my teeth cleanings. Right away I was impressed with this beautiful office. It is warm and comforting. Elaine greeted me with a smile, her private office was so inviting and she made me feel comfortable right away. She explained the procedure before we started. She was gentle and informative on the care of my teeth. She gave me recommendations for care and referred me to a local dentist for further evaluation and care of my teeth. I am not a fan of being in the dental office setting, so this was an amazing experience to be able to have my teeth cleaned in an amazing, beautiful environment. I hope anyone reading this will be able to enjoy this experience just as I did. Thank you so much Elaine, I will refer you to all my friends and family.
