What exactly does a dental hygienist do?

Dental hygienists have training in the meticulous cleaning and maintenance of the teeth and gums, developing a personalised oral hygiene program to suit a patient’s individual needs.

The goal is to maintain healthier teeth and gums and prevent decay and gum disease. Healthy gums are a long-term investment for beautiful teeth, and the dental hygienist will monitor your oral hygiene, helping you to achieve a healthier mouth.
