Integrated Hygiene

Your dental hygienists spend on an average of two hours per year with every patient in your practice. Patient loyalty and value for your services go hand in hand with healthy periodontal conditions.  Hygienists make great professional partners and can be wonderful allies for practice success.

Marnee’s Integrated Hygiene strategies enable even the most highly functioning hygiene department to enhance the overall dental health of their patients as well as the health of the practice in a collaborative manner with high-quality service and profitability.   By delivering evidence-based periodontal care, the program is designed to help you build your hygiene service mix and encourage the hygiene team to take ownership of their role as leaders in your practice.
