Meet the team

Dentists

All our dentists bring their own strengths to the practice; all have their own special interests, and our practice is, as a consequence, stronger as a whole. Our staff attend courses, both external and organised in-house to ensure that we are able to provide the newest and safest treatment to our patients.

Hygienists

We have always regarded dental hygiene as the cornerstone of our practice. Tavistock House was certainly one of the first practices (if not the first practice) in the area to recommend and provide a full hygienist service. We presently have four hygienists working with us, covering a five day week and two evenings between them. On some days we even have 2 or 3 hygienists in the practice! This enables our patients to potentially see a hygienist any day that we are open.

Seeing a hygienist on a regular basis, in conjuction with your routine check ups, will maximise the chance of you maintaining your teeth for as long as possible (hopefully for life!). Our hygienists achieve this by removing calculus (scale) and attached debris from above and below your gum-line, as well as motivating you and discussing with you ways you can improve the effectiveness of your home cleaning routine. Our hygienists will also be able to discuss with you your diet, as well as any activities/ habits which may cause deterioration of your teeth or gum health. Regular visits with the hygienist have also been shown to increase the lifespan of both your teeth and also any existing fillings, etc., that you may have.
