Our lead hygienist is Frances Buckley. She trained at Charles Sturt University, NSW and works with a high level of care, attention to detail and work ethic. She was previously a dental nurse so understands all aspects of patient care.
Gentle, precise and thorough we maintain that not all hygienists are the same. So confident are we with their level of care and dedication, that if you are not happy we will offer your first session free.
Frances helps the patients to maintain the health of their gums. There is evidence to prove that the cleaner the teeth the longer your fillings will last, so good oral hygiene is essential. Frances is able to carry out your routine maintenance care (often known as a scale and polish) as well as more complex deep scaling for more advanced gum problems. She will advise the patients in how to keep their teeth clean and offer dietary advice as needed. As a trained therapist Frances can also take dental x-rays, carry out simple restorations including fissure sealants and administer local anaesthetic where needed to make the treatment more comfortable.
We also offer a walk-in cleaning service for those patients not registered with the practice.
The most common causes of tooth staining are due to the everyday things that we enjoy such as tea, coffee, wine, nicotine etc. These stains can be stubborn and hard to remove.
Amy will have your teeth stain-free and back to their natural colour within minutes with the use of the Prophy Jet system. It uses a stream of air, water and sodium bicarbonate to polish the enamel. This procedure can be carried out after your normal cleaning or on a separate visit.
It is most effective, fast and totally pain free. It is great for a top-up between your regular maintenance cleans or for a special occasion.
