Our practice has a dedicated dental hygienist to look after all your dental hygiene needs. She is available 3 days a week including Saturdays.
Good home care & regular professional cleaning is vital to maintaining your gum health, oral health and general health too. It is recommended that patients with gum disease attend the hygienist every 3-6 months.
