Under recent changes to practicing guidelines patients can now have direct access to our hygienist service without being registered at the practice.
All of the active treatment is carried out by our hygienist Claire Gazzard. Treatment may range from straight forward scaling and polishing with advice on how to maintain a healthy mouth through to deep scaling known as root planning for established gum disease. Claire is able to give local anaesthetic if necessary and is very used to having to treat nervous patients.
We also offer hygiene appointments for our younger patients to encourage good oral hygiene habits from an early age at no cost.
