Michelle started with Dr. Burns in 1992 and Vicki joined in 1996. Their gentle, thorough, and compassionate approach makes it very easy for our patients to enjoy their hygiene appointments. They are very knowledgable in all aspects of their field and actively pursue continuing education to maintain the highest level of care for our patients.
Increasing evidence in both dental and medical literature has shown a link between gingivitis/periodontitis (gum disease) and general health problems (for instance-heart disease and diabetes). We are fortunate enough to have two hygienists in our office that have many years of experience in periodontal (gum) therapy as well as preventative care. They are excited about dentistry and are committed to educating each patient on the benefits of optimal oral health and dental care. They use the latest in diagnostic and educational tool to evaluate your oral health and to teach you the best way to have healthy teeth and gums. Appointments are not rushed so they can take their time and get to know you and answer any questions you may have.
