Dental Hygenist

A Dental Hygienist is a registered professional who is specifically trained in the prevention and treatment of gum disease. Karina Burgess Greig (Dr Michael Burgess’ daughter) is a university trained clinician experienced in Periodontal (Gum) Disease treatment.

It is recommended that you attend the clinic every 6 months for a clean. If you have been diagnosed with gum disease or are considered at risk (a smoker, diabetic) we feel you should come in once every 3-4 months to ensure optimum health for your gums.

Our Hygienist


Karina will care for your dental health in the most gentle, thorough and pleasant manner. The patient and Karina work together on a maintenance strategy to prevent the repeated incidence of gum disease, the frequency of maintenance appointments with the Dental Hygienist will depend on the individual.

During your Hygiene Appointment, Karina will:

  • Make an initial assessment of your gums and jaw bone health to evaluate the current condition with a periodontal chart exam
  • Provide scaling which entails the removal of calculus, plaque and bacteria responsible for gum or jaw-bone disease
  • Complete comprehensive polishing to remove unsightly stains in order to give you a fresher and healthier looking smile.
  • Apply fluoride solutions to prevent decay
  • Take periodic x-rays to establish the condition of pre existing restorations and assess and monitor gum health
  • Demonstrate individual and personalized oral hygiene techniques most suitable for you to keep your teeth and gums in optimal health.
  • Provide dietary advice relating to the prevention of oral conditions.
  • A dental hygienist takes on a somewhat academic role as well: he or she educates dental patients on how to establish and maintain suitable oral hygiene, often with the aid of teeth models to give the parent and child a visual sense. They hygienist should leave the patient with a good understanding of proper brushing habits and the relationship between diet and oral health
