Dental Hygienist

Dental hygienists are specially trained members of the dental team who work together with your dentist. They play an important role in dental health by providing personalised oral hygiene care and instructions to patients.

Our dentists will often ask a patient to see our dental hygienist for more specialised care before/while they undergo complex restorative care.

At examinations our dental hygienist will professionally clean your teeth removing any plaque and calculus, check for bleeding gums, and will measure your bone levels. The hygienist can also apply fluoride treatments, preventive fissure sealants, take x-rays and assist with take home bleaching kits and general dental advice.

The hygienist will also make recommendations about home care techniques and products specifically suited to you.
