Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth and teeth clean to prevent dental problems, most commonly, dental cavities, gingivitis, and bad breath.
Normally if you need to see our hygienist you would have to be referred by Martin our dentist. By law he would have had to prescribe a scale & polish appointment.
From the 1st May 2013 this is no longer the law. All our patients and those that do not attend our practice can make an appointment to see Julie, Jacqui or Rachel our hygienists without seeing Martin. We have found this service fantastic for patients that are very nervous and are to scared to see a dentist but would come and see our hygienist.
So please book your appointment with Carol, our receptionist.
Alternatively you can now book your check- up/hygiene appointment on line visit our website. (www.smile1.co.uk)
