We have a team of dental therapists and oral health educators at School Road Dental Surgery, who are there to help you and your dentist to improve your oral health.
As well as visiting the dentist regularly, to keep your oral health in the best shape possible, you must visit the dental hygienist regularly for a professional cleaning.
What is a dental therapist?
Dental therapists work closely with the dental healthcare team to provide dental care and routine treatment to patients. They give advice on oral health to patients, as well as providing periodontal (gum) treatments and carry out routine restorative work (fillings.)
Dental therapists treat both adults and children and can work in a variety of settings, including the NHS, independent (private) general practice, specialist periodontal or orthodontic practice, education, research and the community.
All of our dental therapists at School Road are qualified as both therapists and dental hygienists. Dental hygienists typically focus on preventative dental health and treatment, such as helping you to keep your teeth and gums healthy. In addition to this, dental therapists carry out general dental procedures, such as restoring and extracting teeth, and pulp treatments.
