Hygienist/Therapist Service
This website is for referring dentists. If you are a patient, please click here for our patient site.

Not every practice has a dental hygienist. However, many patients would benefit from treatment by a dental hygienist/therapist and we are happy to accept referrals from other practices for this. We accept referrals for:

• Scaling and polishing
• Oral hygiene instruction
• Diet advice
• Root surface debridement
• Full mouth disinfection

We can arrange to see your patient directly without having to see one of our dentists first. However, we must have a signed prescription. Please download and print out the referral form and prescription below. Please note that dental hygienists and therapists can see patients only with a written prescription from a dentist and we will not be able to see your patient without one. if you wish us to conduct regular reviews and maintenance for your patient, we will need a new prescription every two years.

Referral Form and Prescription for Hygienist/Therapist Services

In cases where a diagnosis of aggressive periodontitis has been made, your patient may benefit from a course of full mouth disinfection with adjunctive, systemic antimicrobial therapy. In this procedure the whole mouth in disinfected in a single day. Amongst other advantages, this enables us to use a single course of systemic, antimicrobial therapy. We find that the procedure is very motivating for patients. Much research has been carried out into the effect of full mouth disinfection. One recent review paper is linked here. There is further detail in our patient leaflet about the full mouth disinfection procedure below.

Please see our current price list on the link below for our fees for hygienist visits and full mouth disinfection.
