Our office is fortunate to have seven registered dental hygienists on staff with extensive experience in treating patients with periodontal disease and dental implants. All our hygienists have completed the necessary training and requirements to become certified to administer local anesthetics when needed for patient comfort and thorough treatment. They have completed the continuing education requirements and CPR certification necessary for licensure in Michigan.
Dr. Mason employs four full-time dental assistants, two of which are certified dental assistants, one registered dental assistant and one registered dental hygienist. Our dental assistants have 31 years of combined experience. The assistants work side-by-side with Dr. Mason providing four and six handed dentistry to his patients.
Dr. Mason, his hygienists and assistant are supported by three dedicated front desk office professionals. With over 17 years of experience in the dental or health care field, the front desk staff is a versatile team, proficient in managing the daily activities of a business.
The majority of Dr. Masonís patients are referred by their family dentist. However, anyone is welcome to make an appointment if they have a concern with their TMJ (jaw joint) or are interested in replacing lost teeth with dental implants.
