Andrea is Back!
Andrea Morrison, our registered dental hygienist, has worked for Scripps Dental Care for over eight years on three different occasions. She recently moved back to San Diego and has made a long term commitment to our patients and team! Andrea is a native of east-central Illinois. She received her Degree in Dental Hygiene from Parkland College, Champaign, Illinois graduating with honors and was in the top five percent for clinical and academic achievement. She obtained accreditation and holds licensure via Central Regional Board, the Western Regional Board, and the California State Board.
Andrea prides herself on the unique ability to cater to each individual’s specific dental needs, taking into consideration the patient’s personal values, goals, and challenges. She equally enjoys working with patients of all ages and finds personal satisfaction by providing high quality oral therapy with a careful professional touch. Her enthusiasm for a dental hygiene career has been propelled by the connection between her interest in the evolution of dental technology and new developments in dentistry. Her focus of care is based on the patient’s needs while offering modern treatment modalities.
One such special skill Andrea offers, involves using soft tissue lasers in combination with traditional therapy. Research has shown that using ND-YAG lasers inside the periodontal pocket allows for total decontamination and in some cases, removal of bacterially contaminated tissue. This gives the patients’ own immune system it’s best chance for healing to occur.
Scripps Center for Dental Care is no stranger to implementing modern technology in the office as we currently have five lasers in use. Andrea’s philosophy fits well with our mission of providing the best possible general and specialty care available all in one location. Lasers are not the only technology we use at SCDC. We are now using 3D Radiography for improved diagnostic and implant planning. This new technology is fast becoming the standard of care and we are one of only two offices with the Sirona Galilaeos XG 3D system in La Jolla. Andrea’s services, combined with our innovative approach and solutions from restorative procedures to preventive maintenance, allows you to count on Scripps Center for Dental Care to be your total dental health care solution.
