our family has worked with her for 10+ years.
She is gentle and thorough so you leave with your teeth
feeling super clean and your gums feel at peace.
Kim also has a super positive personality and
I swear she puts love in the instruments.”

MISSION

Gentle, personalized dental hygiene care with a holistic approach.

We know all our systems are connected – what is happening in our mouths can represent what is happening in our bodies and vice versa. There is a connection between gum (periodontal) disease and other diseases like heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, and arthritis, in addition to contributing to low birth-weight babies in pregnant mothers.

That’s why The Happy Hygienist uses a holistic approach to treatment; a mindful method of treating the whole person, mind and body. We collaborate with other professionals like dentists, chiropractors, physiotherapists, massage therapists, holistic nutritionists, naturopaths, life coaches, counselors and intuitive healers, creating a health team that looks after every part of your well being. Good oral health contributes to excellent whole body health – and good oral health starts here.

SERVICES

Personalized preventative and periodontal care.

Health History Assessment

We obtain an accurate and comprehensive health history to help in guiding our treatment approach.

Intraoral Photos

These images are a valuable tool in showing you what is happening in your mouth. Say cheese!

pH Testing

An acidic environment is the cause of tooth decay. Significant changes occur in your saliva pH depending on your diet.

Oral Cancer Screening

Screening includes oral tissues, head and neck, and helps to identify mouth cancer early, when there is a greater chance for treatment.

Scaling & Root Planing

A thorough, yet gentle debridement of hard and soft deposits.

Anti-cavity Recommendations

Healthy smiles start here! Let me guide you through your anti-cavity treatment options, including flouride and other alternatives.

Gum Health Assessment

The best defense against gum disease is early intervention!

Polishing

Removes stains, dental plaque accumulation, and smoothes the surfaces of teeth and restorations.

...and no X-Rays

No radiation is used in the office, so no lead vests or x-rays taken. However, it can be useful to see those that were taken at your dentist, should you have any.

Products

Healthy Choices for Healthy Smiles.

We are passionate about educating and empowering you to make informed decision when it comes to your dental care. We respect your opinion, input and personal preference. All products we recommend and use in our office have been hand-picked based on studies and patient experience. We are happy to make recommendations about healthy products that don’t contain SLS, Triclosan or fluoride. We honour the fact that it is your health and your body. We want you to feel empowered in every aspect of your experience with us.

Xylitol

Xylitol is a natural sweetener derived from the fibrous parts of plants. It does not break down like sugar and can help keep a neutral pH level in the mouth. Xylitol also prevents bacteria from sticking to the teeth. Chewing xylitol gum alone reduces plaque by 50% and it is able to penetrate the bacteria biofilm. Xylitol gum and mints can be found in health food stores.

Sonicare

Individual clinical research has shown Sonicare toothbrushes to be more effective than comparable electric toothbrushes in reduction of gingival inflammation; which in turn provides a great improvement in overall periodontal health! Sonicare toothbrushes can be found in most major stores.

X-PUR Remin

Free of harsh foaming agents such as sodium lauryl sulfate (an ingredient used in dish soaps, liquid laundry detergents, toilet-bowl cleaners, and in the majority of all toothpastes). Remin also does not contain triclosan, which is an antibacterial product banned in hand soaps by the FDA in 2017. Remin can be found in the major drug chains.

Kim Bergen, RDH

Kim is a registered dental hygienist who graduated from The University of Alberta’s dental hygiene program in 1996. The draw of the mountains and beautiful B.C. took Kim to Revelstoke, Squamish and the North Shore; the West Coast has been Kim’s home for over 20 years. You may run into her on the mountain trails walking her dogs, or out on the local fields watching her daughter play soccer or field hockey.

Kim is committed to providing individualized, quality care with a holistic approach. She loves connecting with people and her genuinely warm personality and gentle touch allow all her patients to feel at ease. Kim provides the same hygiene services found at a dental clinic, with the added benefit of candid, unbiased conversations about dental treatments. You can have open discussions about dental options without having to worry about added costs; there’s no rush in this quaint office setting – only relaxed, quality care.
