Dental Hygiene

Our in-house dental hygienist, Angela Isaac, is fully qualified and registered as a practising dental hygienist.  She specialises in preventative and long-term dental and gum care.

Through regular care, gum/periodontal disease and tooth decay can be prevented.  This reduces the likelihood of more extensive dental treatments in future years.
