You can now see a hygienist, without first needing an appointment with, or a prescription from, a dentist.
You can choose the hygienist you feel most comfortable with. At Bow Lane Dental we have three dental hygienists that are ready for personalised appointments (in the early morning and late evening). Emma, Christine and Sarah are all happy to see you for a range of dental hygiene and teeth cleaning treatments.
They will clean and polish your teeth and help you return your mouth to sparkling health. Dietary advice will be given and you will shown which toothbrush is right for YOU. We have a whole range of mouthwashes and interdental brushes that are available to make sure you are comfortable with your new routine. Any areas of the mouth they are concerned about or that doesn’t respond to treatment they can refer to a dentist (or other relevant healthcare practitioner) at Bow Lane.
James thinks this is a revolution for the public. “A lot more people getting their teeth checked more regularly. Helping us give our patients the tools to keep their mouths healthy.” In the past some people would not visit the dentist due to cost now, we have reduced the cost of getting your teeth cleaned and helping the gums return to health.
Others may be scared of the dentist, now they can see the dental hygienist first, get them comfortable looking after their teeth and gums and when they are more relaxed and ready they can see the dentist.
