Dental Hygiene Excellence

Experts at implementing the oral systemic connection into practice since 1997.

Dental Hygiene Excellence is lead by Patti DeMatteis, RDH and Lora Hooper, RDH, who are leaders in oral systemic health. After struggling to implement oral systemic care into practice themselves, they developed the DHE Method in 1997.

 

The oral systemic movement has gained massive momentum in recent years. By providing oral systemic care to your patients, you have the opportunity to grow your practice and stand out in your community. The coaches at Dental Hygiene Excellence are deeply grounded in the oral systemic movement. As clinicians themselves who practice as BaleDoneen Preceptors, they have seen first hand the importance of understanding the link between the mouth and the body.

 

Together they have developed a proven method to achieve the highest level of oral health possible for their high risk patients! This oral systemic approach reduces and eliminates oral inflammation, one of the most significant root causes of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
