Dr. Lingfeng Soo, periodontist
Hygienists supporting our periodontist
Our hygienists look after high-risk patients for periodontal maintenance and supportive care with particular sub-set of clinical needs on a daily basis. They are very thorough with their instrumentation techniques for supportive care. They often email hand-over progress notes directly to the dentist and/or your other hygienist for a smooth continuation of care.
They provide supportive periodontal care as prescribed according to the periodontist's treatment plan. Often the periodontist updates the treatment direction on an annual or bi-annual basis depending on your risk factors for disease to ensure that we stay on track.
