Dental hygienists are an important part of the team and are mainly concerned with preventative dental health and treating gum disease – educating and motivating you to help keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Hygienists also give advice about diet and preventing tooth decay. The hygienist will work in collaboration with our specialists to give you care that is tailored to your needs.
Regular professional cleaning to remove plaque and tartar, combined with looking after your teeth and gums properly at home, will help keep your mouth healthy. A clean and healthy mouth will improve your appearance, help you to keep your teeth and give you fresh breath.
Now you can see the hygienist for a professional cleaning without seeing a dentist first. The hygienist will assess, give oral hygiene and diet advice and carry out treatment as necessary. However if they feel that there is a diagnosis or treatment that is outside their scope of practice they will refer (with your consent) to one of our dentists.
Our team of hygienists are happy to take referrals from general dental practitioners and/or are able to accept self referrals from patients directly.
