Dental Hygiene Services
Worthington Dental Group hygienists provide many services to help you achieve excellent dental health. At a dental hygiene appointment you can expect to have a thorough oral health assessment, including an examination of your teeth for function and appearance, a periodontal assessment of the soft and hard structures supporting your teeth, and an oral cancer screening.
Dental hygienists remove calcified deposits and stains from your teeth during a dental prophylaxis (cleaning) procedure. Our dental hygienists will recommend home therapies to help you achieve and maintain optimal dental health and recommend a frequency for professional cleanings. Depending on your individual needs, dental hygienists also apply fluoride treatments and dental sealants to prevent decay, administer pharmacological therapies to treat tooth sensitivity or bacterial infections, and apply whitening agents. Dental Hygiene services include digital x-rays to thoroughly evaluate the integrity of your teeth and their supporting structures. If you experience periodontal (gum) disease, our dental hygienists are trained to treat minor problems, and know when to refer you to a periodontist for further evaluation and treatment. Our unique Dental Hygiene Express appointment brightens your smile in between your recommended dental cleaning appointments, by removing stains and polishing your teeth, for that renewed, “just cleaned” feeling.

“Just wanted to thank you for (on very short notice) working in my mother-in-law today; we so appreciated Toni and Dr. Cunnningham’s quick repair of her broken bridge. It is this kindness, professionalism and expertise that mean so much to your patients. We will continue to recommend your office to anyone in need of dental care.”
“Everyone is so pleasant and helpful. There is no way my experience could be any better!! Especially the office staff.”
“Dr. Cunningham is a fantastic dentist. Over time he has re-done all of my old crowns and added new ones giving me a beautiful smile. He works with an in- house lab so everything is prompt and perfect. Most of his staff has been there the entire 12 years I have been a patient so they are very accomplished and and it speaks well of him as an employer.”
