If you are not registered with our dental practice but you would like to benefit from our dental hygienist services, you can now book a direct access dental hygiene appointment.
Convenient Dental Hygiene
Our Hygiene Therapist is able to carry out dental hygiene treatments without the prescription from a dentist. This allows patients to receive dental hygiene treatment without being registered as a patient at FHDC. Please be aware though that a hygiene visit does not include a dental examination. You should always continue to have regular dental examinations with a dentist.
If our Hygienist comes across something during your appointment that they feel needs a dentist’s advice, they will advise you to make an appointment with your dentist. If you are not currently registered with a dentist and wish to register with FHDC, you can speak to any member of our team and they will advise you how to register.
Our Hygienist may discuss further appointments for hygiene treatment. You can arrange these with our reception team. If you are not registered with FHDC, we will require payment in advance. Our reception team are able to provide you with a receipt should you be a member of an insurance scheme.
Please be aware we have a 24 hour cancellation policy. Charges may be incurred if an appointment is missed or cancelled at short notice.
