Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Have Your Next Clean with Dental Hygienist?

Top five reasons why you should have your next clean with the dental hygienist.

Today we’re going to talk about dental hygienists. Who are they and what do they do?

Hi, Dr Warren here, I’m the principal dentist in Dental House Group. I just finished having a conversation with one of our long term patients Megan from Melton. Her, her husband and their two boys just had their regular six monthly check up and clean with us, it’s their first time with our hygienists. We were having a chat afterward, and she said…”Wow, the clean is really thorough and detailed, I’ve never experienced this before!”

Ever since we started hiring dental hygienists here at the Dental House Group, our patients have felt the level and the quality of our service go to the next level. At the start, I myself was skeptical. What happens if the patients don’t like my hygienist or patients think that I’m just palming the clean off so I can see more clients? Let me tell you, it has probably been one of the best decisions I’ve made for the clinic and our clients, our patients, and here are the top reasons why.

Dental hygienists or dental therapists have to do a three to four-year university degree. They’re specially trained in cleaning teeth and treating young children and young adults.

They dedicate more time for your clean. A lot more than an average dentist will spend. An average dentist will spend about 30 minutes for a check up and a clean, and let me tell you, that is probably not enough.

This extra time with a dental hygienist doesn’t cost more. Most of our clients comment that they never want a dentist to clean their teeth ever again after they’ve seen a dental hygienist.
Your dentists can now spend more time discussing your teeth and your potential treatment options.
Think about this, every six months when you come in for your checkup and clean, your teeth are not only checked by the dentist, but it’s also checked by a second set of eyes, professional eyes, and with more eyes, we can see more and we can ensure that nothing will be missed.

At Dental House, we have clinics throughout Melbourne. This means you have the convenience to go to multiple locations for check ups and cleans. Also, all the dentists and therapists here are specifically trained to be extra gentle and compassionate.

So if you like what you see, and you are looking for a new home to look after yous and your family’s long term dental health, we would love to look after you.

Simply give us a call, send us a DM or fill in the enquiry form on our website, and we will be in touch to organise a time with you.
