What happens at a hygienist appointment
Our wonderful Hygienist, Erika, is a fully qualified and registered dentist. She is an expert professional and enjoys providing hygiene treatments. With Dr Erika, you are in the most reliable hands. Hygiene treatment is also called Scale and Polish treatment. Please find the details below:
Scale your teeth to remove any plaque or tartar build-up in those areas brushing cannot reach

Offer tailored advice on how to maintain good dental health and demonstrate techniques you can use at home
Dr. Erika will also provide advice about diet and preventing tooth decay. She can spot signs of gum disease and will refer you to a periodontist if they see anything that needs further treatment.
