Dental Hygienists – what do they do?

Dental Hygienists and Therapists provide scale and polish treatments which ensure your teeth are thoroughly clean. If appropriate, they can apply preventative treatments to help keep your teeth strong. Some of the treatments available include the following:

  • Scale and Polish treatments
  • Applying preventative treatments to help keep your teeth strong
  • Treatment of gum disease

How does Direct Access work?

Our Dental Hygienists and Dental Therapists are permitted to treat patients without a prior examination by a dentist. This means that we now welcome patients who only want to see our Dental Hygienist. They do not need to register with the Dentists or have an examination beforehand. If our Dental Hygienist or Dental Therapist feels that you would benefit from a dental examination by a dentist, they will advise you of this.

Would you like to book an appointment directly? Or, do you have any questions or queries regarding direct access? If so, please Get in Touch with the practice for more information.
