Carmen G. Salaiz, RDH, is a Registered Dental Hygienist. As a Dental Hygienist, she educates, assists, and evaluates patients to obtain and maintain optimal oral health. Some of the tasks Carmen performs are to review patients’ medical history, take digital radiographs, apply fluoride treatment/fissure sealants and to teach appropriate brushing and flossing techniques. She performs dental prophylaxis as well as scaling and root planing to remove stains, plaque, and build-up from teeth and beneath gum margins.
Carmen has been working in the dental field for many years. She is a licensed dentist in Mexico and she graduated for the Phoenix College Dental Hygiene Program in 2007.
It is important to Carmen to attend continuing education courses and seminars to gain knowledge of new information in the dental field so that she can provide better informed care to her patients. Carmen says, “My mission statement is, ‘to educate and provide dental care to my patients in order for them to maintain their teeth and gingival tissue in the most favorable dental condition throughout their life.’”
Carmen highly appreciates and thanks Dr. E for inviting her to join her practice as a full-time hygienist. She says, “Dr. E is not only an outstanding dentist, she is also kind and has a big heart. Dr. E’s staff is amazing, friendly, and professional. It is a great pleasure to provide dental hygiene care to all patients that come to this dental practice.”
On Carmen’s time off, she enjoys outdoor activities; hiking and biking are her favorite hobbies. She also enjoys taking day trips out of town on weekends. Last but not least, she enjoys listening to music—especially instrumental, soft rock and salsa.
