Registered Dental Hygienist
“We have your best interests at heart,” says Jackie Bascino, registered dental hygienist for Family & Cosmetic Dental Care in Johns Creek. This positive attitude about oral health should make any patient feel at ease when they visit our practice for a teeth cleaning and are under Jackie’s meticulous care.
Dental hygienists play a critical role in a dental office. “I help patients understand the condition of their mouth, maintain the health of their mouth, and evaluate all aspects of their mouth,” Jackie says. Years of experience have fine-tuned Jackie’s skills and she can spot periodontal disease, gum recession, and problem teeth as accurately as any dentist.
“We strive to help everyone and to make every patient feel comfortable and relaxed,” says Jackie. Even non-invasive procedures like a general teeth cleaning and dental exam, can create stress for the most anxious dental patients. But when someone like Jackie is nearby to provide comfort, distraction, and information, patients realize that they’re in the right place.
Jackie praises the fine skills of her employers, Drs. Patel and Smith,saying, “They go to great depths to help patients understand the condition of their mouth. They are friendly and understanding of all situations.” Even if you think your teeth are beyond repair, or that your Johns Creek dentist has never seen a case like yours, think again. You’re unique, but your dental repairs are not – and Jackie and her colleagues are prepared to help every patient achieve the smile of their dreams.
Jackie earned bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene from Augusta University where she was a Hinman scholar and member of Sigma Phi Alpha, the National Dental Hygiene Honor Society. She currently lives in Lawrenceville and enjoys traveling, music, and family time.
