The hygienists seemed relatively knowledgeable but there were several times that their confidence in what they were doing seemed shaky. Specifically, when the dentist asked one to bring her an info sheet on sealants for me, he brought over what seemed to be an outdated or incorrect sheet. When he handed it to the dentist she said something like "What is this? This isn't what I was referring to. But this is fine, just leave it here." I also overheard one of the hygienists ask another how long to leave fluoride in and picked however long she left it in because it "seem[ed] long enough." It seemed like she had either never applied fluoride or hadn't done it many times before. Maybe it was left in for long enough, but hearing that made me lose a little bit of trust in them. I was also really surprised and confused when the dentist began the cleaning because I wasn't informed what was happening when she began to use the electric cleaner tool in my mouth. I asked what it was for and she explained, and she seemed surprised that I didn't know what it was, saying that it's what all modern dentists use now and suggested my last dentist was an older person since they don't use that tool. I asked my friends and coworkers if their dentists use that tool and all of them said their dentists use manual tools. In general, everyone was very nice and accommodating — I loved that I was asked how I was doing often during the process so I could voice concerns, and they had TVs by the chairs — but because of a lot of little things I think I'd like to try a different dentist office for my next cleaning.
