Forest Trail Dental Care has an exemplary team of dental hygienists dedicated to the highest standards of patient care as well as comprehensive continuing education and community service. Two of our very own hygienists, Kimberlyn (left) and Jennifer (right), are active members of the Texas Dental Hygienists’ Association – Central Texas Component. Being involved in this organization is crucial to their pledge to protect, promote, defend and advance the profession of dental hygiene. Kimberlyn serves as the 2016-17 President and Delegate and Jennifer serves as the 2016-17 Secretary. These women communicate the ideas and concerns of local dental hygienists to state and national leadership. They keep our team up-to-date with all the latest issues relevant to their profession. An issue currently being considered at the state level is whether local anesthesia could be administered by dental hygienists. Did you know that Texas is one of only 6 states in the United States that does not permit this practice? Stay tuned and we will keep you informed as Kimberlyn and Jennifer bring us all the latest developments!
