What is a hygienist?
Dental hygienists are specially trained to work alongside our dentists to coordinate patient care plans. Reducing waiting times and offering a personalised service to each patient at a time that's convenient for you.
Our hygienist appointments are focused on preventative dental care and treating gum disease. They will show you how to look after your teeth and gums and keep them healthy. An appointment will include a professional clean removing plaque and tartar (referred to as a scale and polish). They will also give advice about diet and preventing tooth decay.
Our patients can ow see a hygienist without having to attend a dental check-up first. Perfect for a stain-lifting deep clean in-between check-ups, or for a special event. Also available if you have noticed sore gums or bleeding.
