Professional dental cleanings (dental prophylaxis) are performed by Registered Dental Hygienists (RDH). A RDH is a licensed dental professional who specializes in preventive oral health, typically focusing on techniques in oral hygiene. Dental hygienists provide three types of services to their patients. The first of these is preventive services to promote and maintain good oral health and overall health.
The second is educational services to help patients develop behaviors that promote better oral health and help them understand the importance of practicing these behaviors. The third type of service provided is therapeutic services which are treatments meant to stop gum and periodontal disease and maintain healthy tissues in the mouth.
