- perform initial screenings
- take x-rays and impressions
- do scaling and root planning
- place sealants
- administer local anesthetic
- complete dental charts
Piedmont Periodontics patients are fortunate to have one of the very best hygienists in town — Van Le. Originally from Vietnam, Van has called Atlanta home since 1996. She graduated from Georgia Perimeter College in 2006 with an Associate’s Degree in Science and Dental Hygiene.
Van understands how important good oral hygiene is to periodontal patients and has been providing unsurpassed, uncompromised care to Piedmont Periodontics’ patients for more than six years. She works with each patient to ensure that they understand maintenance procedures and that they are well equipped to continue their home treatment and follow up care.
In her free time Van enjoys spending time with family, reading a good book and listening to music.
