Getting your teeth professionally cleaned is a key part of good dental hygiene. That makes the role of dental hygienists among the most important within a dental practice.

To formally recognize the hard work put in by these specialists, the American Dental Association has designated the 2nd week of April as Dental Hygienists Week. At Chicago Beautiful Smiles, we would also like to recognize our amazing hygienists that thoroughly clean and prepare our client’s teeth.

Meet The Dental Hygienists Of Chicago Beautiful Smiles

Our practice has two dental hygienists that have worked with us since the mid-2010s. Jenny and Aria entered this specialty because of their passion for helping others maintain beautiful and healthy smiles.

Like the rest of our staff within Chicago Beautiful Smiles, our dental hygienists always take a careful approach toward cleaning a client’s teeth. From chipping away at plaque buildup before an exam to preparing the teeth before dental implants, a dental hygienist plays a key role in keeping your smile clean, healthy, and well during your appointment. Here are just a few examples that emphasize the importance of dental hygienists within a dental office:

  1. They’re usually the first person to detect signs of cavities, gum disease, and other potential dental problems. While they cannot make the official diagnosis while cleaning your teeth, they can alert both the patient and the dentist of this, so solutions can be brought forward.
  2. Seeing a dental hygienist once every six months can also have lasting impacts on your overall health. The mouth is connected to several important organs including the lungs, heart, stomach and brain. Sometimes dental problems that are detected during a routine cleaning can be early indications of another health problem occurring throughout the body.
  3. One of the best ways to boost a person’s confidence is to help them have a bright and beautiful smile. A thorough cleaning by your dental hygienists can help your teeth look as good as new through buffering and plaque removal. Hygienists want clients to love the way their smile looks too.

Ania - Registered Dental Hygienist

Grateful doesn’t even begin to describe how we feel about having Jenny and Aria on our team at Chicago Beautiful Smiles. We are incredibly thankful for all of the work they do and for the empathy and compassion, they show when cleaning each client’s teeth.

Real Patient Reviews

I have been going to this practice for several years now. I seemingly never have to wait when I arrive at the office and they are all very professional. Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching have been terrific. In addition to doing great dental work, each has a great rapport with their patients. All of their assistants have been top notch as well.

- Neil H.

I recently met with Dr. Ching to have some dental work done, and had an exceptional experience at this office! I usually hate going to the dentist, but this experience was different–this office is hands-down, THE nicest dental facilitiy I have ever seen.

- Shaun F.

This dental office is something I haven’t seen before. I had many past dental experiences at other dental offices (unfortunately not good) and finally I found Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Dr. Hartlieb had helped me restore my teeth to a beautiful smile.

- Natasa R.

I am a loyal patient for over (yikes!) 20 years because I appreciate the time, skill and patience of the entire team. As proof of my gratitude, I live in the city and reverse commute every six months for my appointment.

- Dennis H.

Dr. Hartlieb is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. He has transformed my smile into something of beauty. In fact, many people comment on how beautiful my teeth are who do not even know that I have had major dental work performed. I used to never want to smile that large before, but now I smile as big as possible when photographed.

- Fran L.

I always have a great experience when I go to Chicago Beautiful Smiles. The staff is amazing and Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The facility is incredible and I feel like I’m being treated with the best technology in the dental industry. Go to Chicago Beautiful Smiles for a consultation and I guarantee you will go back time and time again. It does not get any better in the Chicago area.

- Antonio S.

I had a great experience with Dr. Ching – very professional and thorough in his craft. I had been seeing my previous dentist for the past 15 years; however, I am ready to make the permanent switch to Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Dr. Ching is great at explaining the procedures he was performing and made my visit comfortable.
