A periodontist once told me that a good dental hygienist leaves behind around 15% of calculus after initial therapy. As a dental hygiene student, I failed to appreciate what these words implied. Now, 13 years later and amid task relocation in Dutch dentistry, I often think back to those words. Whether the percentage of calculus that is not removed is actually 15% I am not going to debate in this article, as it is not very relevant in this context. It is simply accepted that a dental hygienist does not remove all calculus during initial therapy.
