What happens at a dental hygienist appointment?
When you arrive at your dental hygienist appointment, your experienced and qualified dental hygienist will start by reviewing your medical history.
They will also ask you a few questions about your lifestyle habits including whether you smoke and drink, how you take care of your teeth and whether you have any concerns.
Then they will perform an assessment of your head, neck, teeth and gums, perform thorough teeth cleaning, then discuss their findings with you. You will also receive tailored oral hygiene advice and be referred to the appropriate dental professional for further treatment if required.
