Hygienists and Therapist
Dental Hygienists and Therapists provide clinical and educational care to help you achieve and maintain good oral hygiene. Uniquely qualified to help with the prevention and treatment of oral disease, they focus on preventing gum disease by scaling and polishing teeth and developing plans for you to use at home to maintain your oral health.
Hygienists and Therapists can help to identify those areas where you have difficulty in removing plaque and work with you to modify your brushing technique to ensure effective cleaning.
Emma qualified as a Dental Therapist and Hygienist in 2007. In addition to the Hygienist duties mentioned above a Dental Therapist can carry out a range of procedures. Emma can administer local anaesthesia, provide fillings, extract deciduous teeth, and take radiographs and impressions. Emma specialises in treating children and nervous patients.
Emma joined the practice soon after qualifying and after a brief spell away returned to us in 2012. Her return has been instrumental in assisting our dentists and reducing the waiting time for treatment.
