Fredericksburg Dental Practice Hires New Dental Hygienist

FREDERICKSBURG, VA--(Marketwired - May 26, 2015) - A Fredericksburg dental practice experienced in placing dental implants has hired a new dental hygienist at its growing dental office.

The new dental hygienist, Courtney, recently began working with Drs. Lloyd Moss Jr. and Lloyd Moss III. As a hygienist, Courtney is primarily focused on helping each patient maintain optimal oral health. In order to do so, she will not only clean teeth but also provide patients with excellent home care instructions and nutritional information to help prevent future tooth decay and gum disease.

“We receive nothing but great reviews from every patient that sees Courtney. They always comment on how much they enjoyed their visit and how gentle she is,” Dr. Moss Jr. said.

Dr. Moss Jr. said his dental hygiene staff serve as the first line of defense against dental issues like tooth decay and gum disease. By scaling the teeth to remove tartar and plaque and then polishing the teeth, hygienists help reduce the threat of cavities and even tooth loss, Dr. Moss Jr. said.

“Cleanings are some of the most important doctor’s visits you’ll make in your life, because missing teeth or serious oral health problems can cause a variety of overall health issues,” Dr. Moss Jr. said. “Having professionals like Courtney clean your teeth helps keep your teeth happy and healthy for the rest of your life.”

The Fredericksburg dental practice offers comprehensive family dentistry, pediatric dentistry, cosmetic dentistry services, restorative dentistry, orthodontics and implantology to the communities of Fredericksburg, Stafford, Spotsylvania, King George and Caroline. The doctors provide services including laser gum therapy, root canals, placement of dental implants, mini dental implants, crowns, bridges, partial and complete dentures, and veneers. The practice also offers orthodontic treatment solutions using Invisalign and Six Months Smiles. Since the doctors’ primary focus is on the individual patients’ concerns, they are proud to offer personalized treatment solutions from which their patients can choose.

Dr. Moss Jr. earned an undergraduate degree in biology from Hampden-Sydney College and then his Doctorate in Dental Surgery from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry in 1978. Before starting his own practice in 1980, Dr. Moss Jr. completed a residency at the University of Michigan. He has completed continuing education courses from the most prestigious institutions in the world, including the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, the Nash Institute for Dental Learning, Institute for Advanced Dental Studies and L.D. Pankey Institute.
