Registered Dental Hygienist

Dr. Michael W. Bell, DDS, MAGD

I provide prophylaxes on recare and soft tissue management patients, including supragingival and subgingival scaling and root planing... subgingival irrigation and placing Arestin when indicated.  Patient education is provided as well.  For the past five years I have been taking digital xrays, Trophy by Kodak.  Prior to that, I was taking and developing intraoral and panoramic films.  I am familiar with hard tissue and periodontal charting on the computer using the Practice Works systems, as well as paper charts.  Placing pit and fissure sealants and topical application of fluoride are personal favorites of mine.  I have taken digital photographs for patient profiles and attatched them to their charts.  Finding pending treatment during daily chart reviews and keeping track of hygiene statistics are also part of my skill set. I use the Diagnodent on patients that have the need and recheck applicable areas every year.

I am willing and able to assist, although I am not as familiar with procedures that involve the doctor.  I have assisted using four-handed dentistry with placing fillings and doing crown preparations. I can pack retraction cord, take impressions for temporaries and splints, order supplies and in between patients, clean and sterilize instruments.

Business management duties include making appointments, calling patients for recare, answering the telephone and checking out patients at the computer. I am also familiar with filing and chart auditing.
