Corona Dental Hygienist Mruga JariwalaOur Dental Hygienist, Mruga Jariwala has been practicing with Dr. Patel since August 2008. She graduated from University of California Riverside with a Bachelors of Science in Biological Sciences and a minor in Religious Studies. She received her Dental Hygiene degree from San Juaquin Valley College in 2008 and was the Valedictorian of her class.

A Dental Hygienist plays an important role in patient care and management at our dental office. During a dental appointment, the Hygienist usually removes plaque (soft deposits of bacteria) and Calculus (hard and calcified deposits of bacteria) from above and/or below the gumline, depending on the procedure being performed. They specialize in Scaling and Root Planing and managing gum (gingival) and periodontal (alveolar bone) related infections.

Come and meet our Hygienist, Mruga. She is not only professional but provides utmost quality of care to her patients. She is gentle, kind and compassionate. She will spend the most time needed in offering thorough treatment, educating the patient about their oral health and hygiene, and guiding her patients on how to prevent or maintain gingivitis/periodontitis.

It is an honor and a privilege for Mruga to have the opportunity to work for her father, Dr. Patel. In our family owned private practice, we hold high values in our own expectations as clinicians and the outcome is quality care. As a team, we love to provide the best patient care with honesty and integrity.
