Linda Madden, RDH

She works closely with Dr. Young and each patient to develop a personalized soft tissue program to improve and maintain the periodontal/gum conditions of all of our patients. Linda is well known for being extremely gentle and caring. She is now using ORAQIX and BTT, the strongest topical aesthetics, during each cleaning or scaling. These aesthetics numb deeper pockets for even more comfort during procedures.
