My past visits have been 5+. . . unfortunately at this visit I had a new hygienist (at least new to me). She was no nonsense, no conversation (which is fine since she is cleaning my teeth). However, she only rinsed by mouth one time during the cleaning (could feel glick running down my throat), and only one time during the mint polish stage. Maybe this is the new "rush" standard but it was definitely unpleasant due to the stuff running down my throat. My gag reflex was getting close to rejecting the glick! Although when she did rinse the polish, the rushed state of the cleaning sprayed water all over my face, my neck and my shoulder. Yes, had water running down my shoulder as I laid in the chair. I will still go to Dr. Barnhisel - will just request a different hygienist for my next appointment. Everyone else in his office is WONDERFUL! FRIENDLY!
Thank you so much for your review. We value our patient's opinions and appreciate your honesty. Our regular hygienist, Alli, has been out on maternity for the last couple of months. She will return the beginning of October. The hygienist that you saw was a temp who was filling in for her. We are truly sorry for your experience and we would like to offer you a complimentary cleaning. Please contact our office and we will be more than happy to schedule a time with our usual hygienist. Thanks again!
