Each member of our team is dedicated to making your dental experience with Luker Dental Care  easy, enjoyable, and informative.  We work to help you with all of your dental needs- from scheduling an appointments to completing treatment. 

Hygienist:

Brooke and Alina staff our Hygiene department. Their goal is to help our patients keep their teeth for a life time. They work with our patients to keep the tissue around the teeth healthy. They strive to educate patients about good oral hygiene- brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. They work with Dr. Luker to help provide excellent care to every one whom they serve.

A professional cleaning of a child's teeth every six months is very important. It not only familiarizes them with the dental setting, it makes a child aware of their dental hygiene. A child in braces may need to have their teeth professionally cleaned more than twice a year. The bands and brackets can make it difficult for a child to keep all the bacteria and plaque from forming on the teeth.

Teens and adults need to have a periodontal evaluation at least every six months. Your hygienist will measure the gum tissue around the tooth ( a healthy score is three millimeters or less) and discuss with you the frequency of professional cleanings that would best serve you.

Business office:

Brittany and Jennifer are our Appointment Secretarys. They are available during our office hours to help our patients with scheduling their dental needs.
