About the Dental Hygienist

What is a hygienist?

Dental hygienists are specially trained to work as part of the dental team to give care to the patients. They are mainly concerned with preventative dental health and treating gum disease. This includes professionally cleaning your teeth removing plaque and calculus.

Their most important role is advising you on how you can keep your teeth free of plaque.

Why would you see a hygienist?

A hygienist is specially trained to carry out scaling and polishing and can spend longer with you than the dentist usually can.

Services Offered at University Dental Care

We can offer prolonged treatment which may be over several visits. We can offer local anaesthetic if necessary – please mention it to your dentist.
