  • Perform prophylaxis in the absence of periodontal disease or gingivitis.

  • Perform full mouth debridement, either as a first stage gingivitis therapy or to remove interfering calculus to further enable a more accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

  • Perform root planning as a periodontal therapy.

  • Place locally-administered antibiotics as supportive periodontal therapy.

  • Implement irrigation and desensitizing procedures or products as adjunctive to periodontal therapy.

  • Expose, develop and mount dental x-rays (intraoral and extraoral).

  • Perform In-Office Whitening procedures, including applying gingival isolation, subsequent bleaching gel, and curing gel. Note: The hygienist is unable to apply the first application of bleaching gel. The dentist must perform this.

  • Apply cavity-preventive agents, such as fluorides and pit and fissure sealants.

  • Make recommendations as to patients' recare interval and follow-up needs.
