Melanie Waters' bio

This content was provided by Melanie Waters "Excitingly, changes to California law have established a unique niche within the dental profession, giving hygienists the ability to provide optimal oral health care while working independently of dentists in a more relaxed, individualized and quieter environment. The Registered Dental Hygienist in Alternative Practice (RDHAP) was created as an independent dental hygiene practitioner with a key goal of increasing dental care access for underserved communities.The independence of RDHAPs as providers allow them the freedom and flexibility to reach out to patients in new and creative ways, providing new consumer choices for preventative treatment and services.? Pure Dental Hygiene is a patient centered approach to dental wellness. An environment dedicated to preventative care will enable the hygienist to thoroughly assess and treat oral health conditions through the provision of therapeutic, educational and preventative procedures to promote wellness. The "Pure" concept uses some of the latest dental technologies that increase comfort while incorporating spa-like elements to make your experience more enjoyable. As part of this mission, "Pure" will endeavor to develop a partnering trust with patients to help them maintain a healthy smile for a lifetime! "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Melanie Waters "We take the time to know each and every one of our patients so that we can provide high quality, personalized dental hygiene care to meet your individualized needs. Our goal is for you to have an enjoyable and positive patient experience. 

We customize your professional dental hygiene treatments on the basis of your periodontal (gums and bone) health. Many people have infections in the gums and bone that goes undetected because it does not cause any pain. You can expect us to determine what is necessary to keep you healthy and infection free before it is too late.

Our commitment is to be as thorough as possible in everything we do. By being thorough, we can continually re-evaluate your hygiene needs and develop a personal plan necessary to maintain a lifetime of good oral health.

We look forward to getting to know you and helping you take care of your smile."
