Direct Access to our Hygienists

by Susanne Ellis, on 6th October 2014 | 0 comments

Until 1st May 2013, if you wanted to make an appointment with a dental hygienist you would have to see a dentist first. However, this rule has now changed and so you can now book directly with a dental hygienist offering a ‘direct access service’. This means the ‘hygienist’ is working within her scope of practice, which includes professional cleaning services and advice on gum health and prevention of dental disease.

If your dentist does not have an hygienist, or you’re not a member at a dental practice yet but would like to book a private hygienist appointment, then please call us on 01743 343433.

If our hygienist notices that you may need other general dental treatment, she’ll refer you back to your general dentist with their findings. Direct access hygiene appointments does not constitute ‘registration or membership’ with the practice and we cannot guarantee to provide emergency treatment to non-registered patients. If you are not registered with a practice, the DENTAL SPA would welcome you as a patient, please book in for a new patient consultation with one of our Dentists.
