Celebrating 50 years of Service in 2024

At BRHC Dental Services, we have general dentists, pediatric dentists, and dental hygienists.

General Dentist

A general dentist is your primary care dental provider. This dentist diagnoses, treats, and manages your overall oral healthcare needs, including gum care, root canals, fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges, and preventive education.

Pediatric Dental Services

Pediatric dentists are dedicated to dental services for children from infancy through the teen years. They have the experience and qualifications to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood.

Dental Hygienist

Dental hygienists are preventive oral health professionals who have graduated from an accredited dental hygiene program. In performing the dental hygiene process of care, the dental hygienist assesses the patient’s oral tissue and overall health, determining the presence or absence of disease, other abnormalities, and disease risks.

They develop a dental hygiene diagnosis based on clinical findings, formulate evidence-based, patient-centered treatment care plans, perform the clinical procedures outlined in the treatment care plan, and educate patients regarding oral hygiene and preventive oral care.

The hygienist also evaluates the outcomes of educational strategies and clinical procedures provided. Dental services typically include removing plaque, calculus, and stains from the teeth, exposing and processing dental X-rays, applying cavity-preventive agents, such as fluoride, pit, and fissure sealants, and administering antimicrobial agents.

Accepted Insurance

In addition to MaineCare and Medicare, we accept insurance from most popular insurance companies.
