Direct Access Hygiene

Direct Access Hygiene

On May 1st, 2013, the General Dental Council deemed it no longer necessary for dental hygienists to work to the prescription of a certified dentist. Therefore, you can now book an appointment with a dental hygienist directly, with no obligation to visit the dentist beforehand.

Dental hygiene treatment at Crown Street Dental Group includes:

  • General hygiene treatment
  • Cleaning and polishing
  • Periodontal therapy

Dental hygienists that practice under Direct Access are not required to provide treatment or make a definite diagnosis if it doesn’t fall within their scope of practice. The decision to visit a dental hygienist remains entirely up to you, and you may still book an appointment with our dentists in the usual way. If necessary you may then be referred to a hygienist later on.

We strongly recommend that you continue to visit your dentist on a regular basis for routine check-ups.
