Hygienist Ashley Fana truly loves cleaning teeth. “Removing all the dental calculus is so satisfying,” she says, laughing. “I know that sounds gross, but I love it.” More than that, though, she loves when she can make her patients feel at ease. “As a hygienist,” she says, “my job is to help you feel comfortable. That way, you’ll look forward to coming back.”

She also respects that not everyone is on the same page when it comes to their home care: “I certainly wasn’t perfect before hygiene school,” she says. “There’s so much to learn—that’s why education is such a big part of my visits.”

“A lot of people think we’re just teeth cleaners,” she says. “But it feels great when I can really change someone’s perspective on oral hygiene. The dental experience can be comfortable, it can be soothing, even. For me, oral hygiene is just another part of my self-care.”
