Hi, I'm Jonamarie

I'm a Registered Dental Hygienist here.

 A little about me

I’ve always had my heart set on being a hygienist, and that means working with different sets of teeth. I also believe that the mouth is a window to the health of the rest of the body, so it is very important to me that teeth are just as healthy as everything inside our bodies. With the acquired knowledge and skills I learned from school, I’m now happily keeping patients’ beautiful teeth clean and healthy.

As a dental hygienist, patient-centered care is my top priority. I love working with patients because my goal is to help them achieve optimal dental health by oral disease prevention and patient education. I always make sure that my patients are comfortable during appointments and I love knowing that they are at ease throughout their visits. I absolutely love educating my patients more on how to properly take care of their teeth.

Learning instrumentation in clinic was the most surprising for me. It amazed me how different instruments were needed to access certain surfaces of a tooth, implementing proper adaptation to avoid tissue trauma, and how different instruments (sickles vs curettes) can be used above and/or below the gum line. Surprisingly, learning of the proper grasp (modified pen grasp) was significant during school to avoid hand injury in the long term.

I really think that the Cavitron (ultrasonic scaling) and Montana Jack Scaler are my most used instruments during patient appointments. I find myself using these often because I like to make sure that my patients get the best care possible. Patients love how quickly they can feel the difference, especially in the lower anterior areas. Utilizing ultrasonics produces less trauma to the tissue and tooth structure.When I’m not working, I love to stay at home taking care of my two adopted dogs and making sure I plan/cook healthy meals in advance for the following work day(s). I am also trying to advance my skills with playing guitar. I love cleaning and organizing. Keeping motivated on my fitness/health goals is also a big part of me now.
