At the practice we base our advice for patients on the “Delivering Better Oral Health” evidence based toolkit, dentists use this toolkit to provide patients of all ages with the best prevention and oral care advice. We do this by offering tooth brushing/oral hygiene instruction, fluoride application and diet advice. This can vary from an informal chat on your examination visit to a demonstration and advice session by one of our trained clinical team.
