Healthy smiles

Being able to smile with confidence and eat comfortably are hugely important aspects of dental wellbeing that affect us all on a daily basis.

Health & hygiene

Good dental health is achieved in a three-way partnership between your dentist, your hygienist - and you. We are a formidable force for helping to keep your teeth healthy for life and this is what our preventive philosophy sets out to achieve.



  • To instil a preventive philosophy and seek your commitment to regular six monthly visits so we can spot any issues early
  • To impart tips and advice that give you the skills to maintain healthy teeth and gums between visits
  • We will recommend products for you to use between visits that maximise the health of your teeth and gums
  • To educate you in the modern approach to dental care: dentists and hygienists are vital to the success of a preventive approach
  • Hygienists provide deep and thorough cleaning of the teeth and gums to prevent and manage gum disease and decay. Hygiene therapy may reduce the risk of developing serious medical conditions
  • To reduce gum disease, which is linked to arthritis, heart disease, strokes, diabetes and pregnancy complications. Around 90% of us suffer from gum disease during our lives but with good dental care the risks can be easily controlled
