Hygienist Service

Great oral hygiene; great teeth and gums

The hygienist’s main role is to professionally clean the teeth for the patient. This is usually called scaling and polishing. However, perhaps their most important role is showing the patient the best way to keep teeth free of plaque. The hygienist will work with your dentist to provide care tailored to your needs. Contact us for more information.

Improve your oral health, for now and for years to come

Over 90% of the population show some signs of gum disease without even realising it. The reason for this is simple: it is a silent, painless disease.

Sue Hodge CEB Dip Dent Hygiene Guy's London Cert OHE

I qualified as a dental hygienist at Guys Hospital in 1991. Having previously worked at several practices in Essex, I joined Fourways in 2001. My work always has been and remains a very rewarding and challenging area of my life. My free time revolves around first and foremost golf, eating out, holidays, cooking, socialising, gardening and cramming as much fun as possible into my life.
You don’t have to be a patient at our practice to see the hygienist. To book your appointment, call us on:
