Hygiene Appointments

Maintaining healthy gums is paramount for a healthy mouth.  At Golding House we aim to help you prevent or cure any gum problems by advice and care that is suitable to your needs.

We have a gentle approach to providing gum treatment that has proven effective and popular with our patients.  If you have found hygiene treatment painful in the past, then please talk to us to find out how we can help you.

Direct Access Appointments
 
From 1 May 2013, our dual qualified Dental Therapist/Hygienist can see patients that fall within her ‘scope of practice’ directly without a prescription from a dentist.
 
In line with Direct Access arrangements you can now book a hygiene appointment directly with the clinician of your choice at our practice.
 
These new arrangements do not take the place of a regular check up with a dentist. Please be aware a full oral health assessment is not provided during a dental hygiene appointment. Only a dentist has the training and qualification to do so. You can carry on seeing your dentist, or the therapist will advise when to go back to your dentist.
