At Orange Tree Dental, we are fortunate to work with our experienced dental therapist Emma. She provides support for the dentist by treating gum disease, as well as providing extra services such as simple fillings, fissure sealants and removal of baby teeth.
Good oral hygiene is the cornerstone of a healthy mouth – and the benefits go far beyond.
Recent research has shown links between gum disease and strokes, heart disease and premature and low-birth-weight babies.
At Orange Tree Dental, Emma does far more than just a quick “scrape and polish”. She is especially talented at teaching you the techniques you need to use at home to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy, complementing our practice philosophy that prevention is better than cure.
The Law was changed in May 2013 to allow patients direct access to hygienists. Previously, patients had to have an appointment with a dentist first. This is great news for patients who want a gleaming smile for that special occasion, or who just wish to have that clean and fresh feeling without having to see a dentist!
