PRIVATE DENTAL HYGIENE CLINIC
Established in 2009 by Heather Mayhew, Floss Dental Hygiene Services provides
preventative dental hygiene care to clients of all ages.
Floss focuses on its clients' oral health, and ultimately overall body health.
Floss Dental Hygiene Services has grown and flourished to provide care to the local
community in the Comox Valley.
PREVENTITIVE DENTAL HYGIENE CARE
There are several hundred species of bacteria in the oral cavity, most maintain a symbiotic relationship with
our immune system.
However, there are many species that are highly pathogenic causing destruction to the tissue in the oral cavity.
Find out what oral pathogenic bacteria you have that could effect your overall body health. A simple, easy, pain
free oral swab with the help of OraVital.
Dental Hygiene Exam
Our hygienists provide a thorough exam of your mouth including oral cancer screenings,
head and neck exams, assessments of your teeth, gums, and the area below your gums to help
provide the best care plan for you.
Scaling and Root Planing
Cleaning above and below the gumline with the latest technology in hand instruments and ultrasonic
or 'power scalers' to provide you with the best outcome for your oral health.
Removal of stain (coffee, tea, wine, tobacco and other stain causing factors) from the
teeth with rotary or air polishers.
Fluoride application in the form of varnishes or gels are available in the office.
Sealants are another form of cavity prevention for the chewing surfaces of susceptible teeth.
Cold sensitivity is a common occurrence with today's diets. Products are available for home use,
as well as in-clinic application to help relieve the symptoms of cold sensitivity.
Adapting to the new challenges presented to small business,
the decision was made to leave our store front location of 13 years and downsize the office.
Now located 4 minutes from the Comox downtown core at 307 Curtis Road,
the office is situated near the Lazo bird marsh and minutes from the beach.
Please contact us if you have questions regarding our new location.
We look forward to seeing you in our office.
