Dental Hygienist

Dental Hygienists are often the best preventative cure for periodontal disease, effectively treating it early which can avoid more costly dental treatments when periodontal gum disease gets worse.

Peter Huang is Epsom Dentists onsite Dental Hygienist and is a qualified and licensed oral health specialist. Peter has many years of experience in dental hygiene and is available to provide routine maintenance and checkup of your teeth.

On an average day a hygienist may see around 8-10 patients, with many returning for their regular 4 or 6 months cleaning and check-up. They will also review a patient’s medical history, take appropriate x-rays, maybe screen for oral cancer, periodontal disease, decay and dental diseases. They will then scale and polish your teeth.

Your hygienist will provide a customized oral health care instruction sheet (“you need to floss more, use tooth mousse or other useful dental care products”). Other treatments available include professional fluoride treatment. The hygienist always works with the dentist to inform them of their findings, while the dentist examines and x-rays your teeth.
