Your Dental Hygiene Centre in West Malling, Kent
Helping You To Maintain a Healthy Smile for Life
Dental Hygienists play an essential role in our practice. They educate patients as to the best way to brush and floss and can help you to maintain optimal dental health.
After your initial examination by the Dentist, we would like you to visit our Dental Hygienist for a one-hour appointment. We believe that this is one of the most important visits you will ever have at IQ Dental, and it is the best way of delivering a personalised programme for preventive treatment and advice.
Our dedicated and highly trained Dental Hygienists go through the most important aspects of maintaining a high level of oral hygiene at home – showing you how to protect your teeth and gums with any restorations you may have. They will also clean your teeth professionally, leaving your mouth healthy and fresh.
