We are pleased to welcome our new dental hygienist Rachel James.
Rachel is from Stony Stratford and qualified from The University of Sheffield as a hygiene therapist, working in various practices including community dental services.
Rachel is passionate about periodontal care and motivating her patients to improve and maintain their oral health at the highest level.
Her role is mainly concerned with ‘preventive’ dental health and treating gum disease – showing you correct home care and helping you to keep your teeth and gums healthy. This includes professionally cleaning your teeth by removing plaque and tartar (usually called a ‘scale and polish’ or a prophylaxis). However, perhaps her most important role is showing you the best way to keep your teeth free of plaque. Plaque is a sticky coating that forms constantly on your teeth. She will also give advice about diet and about preventing tooth decay. For more information please click here.
