Our half hour appointments give time for oral hygiene instruction as well as cleaning by ultrasonic, prophyjet (air polishing) and hand instrumentation.

A very high proportion of our patients see a hygienist regularly to help maintain their oral health which is doubly important due to its link with systemic disease such as heart disease and diabetes.

 

At your appointment with your hygienist they will be on the look out for any signs of gum disease which  is the biggest cause of tooth loss amongst adults in the UK if not treated.

Direct Access

‘Direct Access’ means giving patients the option to see a dental care professional (DCP) without having to first see a dentist and without a prescription from a dentist. The requirement to carry out certain treatments under prescription from a dentist was removed on 1st May 2013.

This means that Dental Hygienists may choose to carry out their full scope of practice, except tooth whitening, without a prescription from a dentist if they feel confidant to do so. At all times registrants must act in the patient’s best interests and comply with the GDC’s standards.

In practice this means that patients may see hygienists without seeing their dentist first but the need for regular checkups with a dentist will always be stressed and is advised.


Our dedicated team of hygienists and a dental therapist look forward to helping you on your next visit. Learn more about them here.
