Would you like a Private Scale and Polish?

Appointments can now be made to see our Dental Hygienist without a dental examination.

Dental Hygienists – what do they do?

Dental Hygienists and Therapists provide scale and polish treatments to 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 can now welcome patients who only want to see our Dental Hygienist without having to register with the Dentists and have an examination beforehand. If our Dental Hygienist or Dental Therapist feel that you would benefit from a dental examination by a dentist, you will be advised of this.

If you would like to book an appointment directly, or would like to ask any questions or queries regarding direct access, please get in touch with the practice for more information.
