What does ‘Direct Access’ to a hygienist mean?

Our practice allows direct access by patients to the dental hygienist and dental therapist, for our hygiene services without a prescription from the dentist. Direct access treatments are available to existing and new patients. New patients who do not wish to see a practice dentist will, at their appointment with the hygienist or therapist, be given information on the limitations of the treatment that the hygienist or therapist can provide and be advised of the need for a full oral health assessment by a dentist. Direct access is available for the full scope of practice of our hygienist and/or therapist.

Whether you are a registered or un-registered patient of the practice and would like a professional clean, please speak to a member of our reception team or book online, to arrange a suitable visit.
