Direct access dental hygiene and therapy

Do you need to give your confidence a boost and look your very best for that special occasion? A wedding, perhaps; an interview; or an important function?

At North Street Dental and Implant Clinic in Dudley, West Midlands we are now able to offer same-day appointments with our increasingly popular dental hygienist and therapist, Sophie Mae.

You don’t have to see our dentist

New legislation from the General Dental Council means you can go straight to a dental hygienist for a professional teeth cleaning and advice on your dental health. That means we can welcome people who only want to see our dental hygienist/therapist without them having to register with the dentist.

Previously, all work carried out by hygienists had to be referred by a dentist.

Same day appointments for a scale and polish

Don’t want to see a dentist, but want your teeth to sparkle? Sophie Mae BSc Dental Hygiene and Therapy (B’ham) GDC 264333 can normally see you the same day. No waiting for a dental appointment with our dentist . . . no frustrating delays.

No dental examination to get appointment

You will not need a dental examination to see Sophie. Just call us and we’ll book you in. It’s a simple as that. Our dental clinic is on North Street, Dudley, West Midlands – map and directions can be found on our contact page.

Your dental health on screen

As part of the treatment, we use an interoral camera to display images of your mouth on a screen you will be able to see. It helps us educate patients and Sophie will be able to show you those teeth that may require special attention and how to clean them thoroughly.

What will happen at my dental hygienist’s appointment?

  • You will be given 45 minutes of clinical time
  • You will receive a thorough oral assessment
  • An interoral camera will be used and you will be able to see on screen the issues Sophie will address with your teeth
  • Scale and polish therapy
  • You will also receive an oral education lesson on how best to look after your smile
  • Should you need to see a dentist, Sophie will make the referral. You will have a choice to take that referral away with you, or we can process it within the North Street Dental and Implant Clinic practice with one of our care providers. We are fortunate to have an extremely skilled clinical team and those referrals not requiring a consultant are in-house.

New: Air Flow polishing

Also worth considering is our brand new Air Flow polishing treatment. An innovative procedure that quickly cleans and polishes the teeth with a mix of water, compressed air and fine powder particles.
