Why do I see a dentist and dental hygienist separately?

Many patients are still new to the concept of a dental hygienist despite them being around for many decades! Dental Hygienists are university qualified dental professionals whose main role is to scale and clean your teeth above and below the gums, provide oral hygiene education, diet assessment and preventative treatments to ensure your teeth don’t develop cavities.

Our Dental Hygienists are supremely skilled and efficient at cleaning your teeth. Our practice philosophy is to have your dental hygienist look after your teeth cleaning and gum health, whilst your dentist can look after the more comprehensive dental procedures. Being looked after by two dental professionals at your maintenance visits ensures you receive optimum dental care.
