For your comfort and convenience, you can now see our Dental Hygienist directly, without the need to see a dentist first.

Dental hygiene plays a major part in preventing oral and systemic diseases such as dental decay, diabetes and heart issues and many patients are choosing a ‘direct-access’ to a hygienist appointment as a convenient way of benefitting from regular hygiene treatments.

Our Dental hygienists have advance training in the prevention and treatment of gum disease and play a vital role in helping our patients to understand the health benefits of regular hygiene treatments and if they feel that you would benefit from a dental examination by a dentist, you will be advised of this.

How our hygienists can help you:

Great gum health is important for your smile, comfort, confidence and quality of life.

Our hygienists carry out professional cleaning of your mouth and advise you about any necessary treatment which may include:

  • Specific oral hygiene methods to help you control the bacterial that collect on your teeth.
  • Checking for any oral health issues such as gum disease.
  • Prevention of bleeding gums and bad breath.
  • Removal of stains, plaque and tartar.
  • Healthy eating advice.
  • Providing support if you wish to give up smoking.
  • Care for your dental implants.
