After recent changes to the rules, direct access to the dental hygienist is now possible. What does this mean? Well, the main differences are:
1. There is no need to be referred by a dentist to see the hygienist.
2. You can simply call the practice, even as a new patient, to book an appointment with our hygienist.
3. Follow up dental hygiene visits can be booked directly without a dental examination.
It is still essential, in our opinion, to see the dentist at least once a year for your dental examinations and risk assessments. Working together as a team, will reduce your risk of developing dental disease. After all, prevention is better than cure!
To book with our hygienist directly call us on 0207 7311162 or e mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Appointments are available on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and selected Saturdays.
