To maintain your gums’ good health

Dental hygienists are licensed healthcare professionals who focus on preventing and treating oral diseases to protect your teeth and gums. As well as assessing your gums and deep cleaning your teeth, which may include an air polish, they also give advice on daily techniques to help manage and prevent gum deterioration.

Our hygienists can also provide treatment using PerioChip®, for those patients with more advanced gum disease, offer advice on teeth whitening and carry out oral cancer checks.

The advantages

  • Can help prevent gum disease or stop it from worsening.
  • Reduces the risk of developing serious general health conditions that are related to poor oral health, such as heart disease.
  • Helps you look after your teeth more effectively at home.

Why do we put off a visit to the Dental Hygienist?

It’s so easy to put off a visit to The Dental Hygienist, particularly when you are not aware of any problems. We know many of you are worried about,

  1. Time/ other priorities
  2. Cost
  3. Fear

These are all reasons we need to address, so we would like you to know

How we can try to help you.

Time: We offer flexible time slots between 8.30 am / 6.00pm to allow the most convenient time for you to visit us.

Cost: We offer a payment plan & standby appointments; our Receptionists, Alison & Mary will explain these options to you.

Fear: We feel this is the most important reason, that’s why our two Hygienist’s (Alison & Annie) are fully qualified health care professionals, who will make your appointment informative & enlightening. There is always lot’s to discuss and you are given time to express any concerns and to explain how you are feeling.

Remember oral health is not just about bad breath, smoking, or sensitivity it’s also proven to be a risk factor in Heart disease or Alzheimer’s.

Gone are the days of a quick ‘polish’ and a lecture about flossing or smoking. Now our Hygienist’s will carry out a thorough examination of your gums, tongue, & soft tissues, (An oral cancer check) also a gum assessment or screening.

The Hygienist will spend time explaining how you can prevent gum disease & tooth decay by improving your home care. You will get oral hygiene advice, be recommended a suitable toothbrush & interdental aids to help you keep your mouth healthy, and to prevent any problem’s coming back.

A professional deep clean will be carried out with your full co-operation. This will remove any deposits or staining from your teeth. This could include an opportunity for an Air Polish, which is fantastic for removing unsightly stains caused by smoking or from red wine, tea, & coffee.

We hope you have found this information informative.

Information about the temporary practice closure and emergency treatments

Dear Patients,

Following the announcement by the government on 28th May, we are incredibly pleased and excited to announce that we are hoping to re-open The Gallery Dental Group Practices mid to late June for appointments. The announcement was publicised on the news to the public without giving dental practices any prior notice to fully prepare and we are still waiting for confirmed guidelines so do please bear with us.

We have had to cancel numerous appointments since the lockdown began 3 months ago and will initially be prioritising appointments for our existing patients who have had dental emergencies or appointments cancelled, in order of urgency. Please do not attend the practice unless you have an appointment. The reception teams are available to take calls from immediate effect and we would ask if you do have an emergency to email the practices initially with the subject heading “I have a dental concern” with a brief message of the problem/symptoms. We will be able to add you to the priority list and will contact you in due course.

At The Gallery Dental Group the most important thing is patient safety and comfort, and that is why we have spent the time of closure upgrading the practices, training the team and introducing the following measures to keep our patients and staff SAFER than ever.

The practices, as you are aware are always a very clean and safe environment. However, we have placed hand sanitisers at entry points, upgraded our Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for all appointments and where treatment is prescribed you will notice different PPE worn by the clinicians. We have also redesigned the patient journey in line with social distancing.

We thank you all for your patience during this difficult time and look forward to seeing you again soon!

Assuring you of our best attention at all times.

The Gallery Dental Group Team
