March 4th – 10th is National Dental Assistants Recognition Week, a week devoted to acknowledging and celebrating the important role dental assistants play in patient safety, comfort, and satisfaction. The staff at Oradell Family Dental are an integral part of what makes our patient-experience so rewarding and we are proud to honor the amazing work our hygienists, administrative, office, and support staff does every day.
If you are looking for a family dental practice with a dedicated, friendly, and helpful staff, give us a call at 201-384-9292 to schedule an appointment at our Oradell, New Jersey location today.
One of the most important services provided by our hygienists is the professional cleaning of your teeth during routine office visits. Performed every six months, these cleanings remove plaque that has hardened into tartar from all surfaces of the teeth to help prevent decay, infection, and disease. Professional dental cleanings also remove surface stains and gently polish teeth for a brighter and more attractive smile.
Our experienced hygienists know how to identify signs of oral health issues including tooth infection, dental caries, oral cancer, and gum disease. During your routine cleanings, indications of oral health issues are noted and brought to the attention of Dr. Perlmutter. This allows Dr. Perlmutter to focus on these issues while performing his examination, enabling him to provide swift and effective treatment as quickly as possible.
Dr. Perlmutter and the team at Oradell Family Dental are committed to providing you with the most rewarding dental experience possible. This includes providing you with personalized educational information and oral hygiene recommendations. Our hygienists are adept at recognizing oral health needs and are qualified to provide modified oral-care instructions based on yours.
Help Your Hygienist
While our hygienists are exceptional, they cannot keep your teeth and gums clean without your help. You can do this by:
- Using a soft-bristle toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste to brush your teeth when you wake up, before you go to bed, and after each meal
- Flossing in between each tooth – from root to crown – at least twice a day
You can further keep your teeth and gums clean by eating a healthy diet, refraining from excessive sugar consumption, and choosing fresh and whole foods for a majority of your nutrients. National Dental Assistants Recognition Week happens during National Nutrition Month, giving you one more motivator to optimize your oral and systemic health.
Dr. Perlmutter is a family dentist with over 30 years in practice. Trusted, attentive, and highly trained, Dr. Perlmutter takes time to understand the unique needs of each of our patients, allowing him to provide the most effective treatments.
Our exceptional staff assist in every aspect of patient care and are an indispensable part of the positive experience we strive to give each patient.
