We place a high value on periodontal health, which ensures that the gums and bone surrounding your teeth stay strong. Loss of this support is now the largest cause of tooth loss in adults worldwide.
Dental hygienists are your defense against gum and bone disease. In our office, Michelle Archuleta, RDH, is the point person to keep you healthy. We had to go to Albuquerque to find her, but it was worth it. She comes with a large tool kit for managing periodontal health. She is certified in laser treatment, local anesthesia, managing blood borne pathogens, oral cancer screening, the Perio Protect system, and in HIPAA compliance. Michelle has been in dentistry for a decade and is also a licensed dental assistant with extensive experience in dental office administration and dental treatment coordination.
