Prairie Village Dental Clinic Adds New Dental Hygienist to Professional Staff

PRAIRIE VILLAGE, KS--(Marketwired - September 30, 2014) - Dr. Grant Smith, who owns and operates one of the best cosmetic dentistry practices in the Prairie Village area, recently hired a new dental hygienist to join his skilled and professional staff.

The new dental hygienist, Carolyn Carmosino, is a graduate of the University of Missouri-Kansas City who began at Dr. Smith's office earlier this month. She joins an experienced and excellent staff that has served the Prairie Village community for several years. As a dental hygienist, Carmosino cleans patients' teeth and assesses patients for any signs of periodontal disease. Dental hygienists also work diligently to provide quality education that will improve the patient's overall oral health. Dr. Smith said Carmosino has brought enthusiasm to the position, as well as a great deal of professionalism.

"After interviewing several new graduates, we decided that Carolyn was the most qualified and would be the perfect fit for our hygiene department," said Dr. Smith, who provides dental implants Prairie Village, KS, residents find dependable and affordable. "She has jumped right into the flow of things at our office, and our patients have been impressed with her gentleness and caring attitude."

Dr. Smith was introduced to dentistry by his father, Dr. Robert Smith, who is the former owner of the practice. Dr. Smith purchased the practice from his father and built a new location in 2013. He graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry. Following his graduation, he completed his residency at the school's special patient care clinic.

Dr. Smith's practice has eight dental operatories and an in-office dental laboratory for fabrication of bleach trays, bite guards and partial implants. He offers cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry and preventive care in his state-of-the-art facility. The office uses a huge sterilization area with autoclaves; digital X-rays with a digital pano machine; intraoral cameras; dentalvibe to reduce pain of injections; soft-tissue laser; and Diagnodent. Individual treatments include Snap-On Smile; tray whitening; teeth whitening at the dentist with Zoom whitening; crowns; fillings; cavity risk analysis with CariFree program; fluoride varnish; mouthguards for sports; TMJ pain relief; dental implants; partial implants; denture fabrication; and periodontal treatments.
