Prevention is always better than the cure

Believe it or not we would rather not see you in our chair. Especially for dental repair treatment that could have been avoided simply through better hygiene.

As any of our clients will testify, we are passionate about good oral hygiene and it is something we freely discuss with our patients.

So in order to keep you out of our chair, other than for regular check ups and hygiene visits, we have put together lots of useful information about good oral hygiene practices, brushing techniques and more, to help you look after your teeth in the best possible way.
