Georgia is our Dental Hygienist and Therapist. She qualified from Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry.
As a Hygienist and Therapist she works closely with other members of the team and can carry out preventative and periodontal treatments for both adults and children.
Georgia is both patient and caring enabling her to work closely with patients who have a variety of needs.
As a Hygienist Georgia’s role is to reduce the risk of tooth decay and promote good oral health. This can involve procedures such as; professionally cleaning your teeth by removing plaque and tartar build up-usually called scaling and polishing, applying topical fluoride treatments, and encouraging and demonstrating correct tooth brushing techniques as well as interdental cleaning (e.g. Flossing).
A Therapists role is similar to that of a Hygienist but can also include; fillings on both permanent and deciduous (baby) teeth, pulp treatments and extractions of deciduous teeth, administering local anaesthetic, and taking X-rays.
Georgia regularly keeps up to date with new and innovative techniques through the BSDHT and the BADT.
Georgia divides her spare time between socialising with friends in London and walking her three Westie’s in the Suffolk countryside.
