Health is first, last, everything
The first step to improving your smile is to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy.
A very thorough cleaning by our hygienist’s, Rosanna (Rosie) Hosker-Thornhill and Tina Wang, followed by then maintaining the result with immaculate brushing and flossing at home – on a daily basis using a fluoride toothpaste – and being careful of the frequency of sugar in your diet will allow you to keep your teeth healthy for the rest of your life.
Healthy teeth and gums look… well…. healthy!
Your first hygienist appointment at LCIAD
Our first hygienist appointment for a new patient at LCIAD is 90 minutes.
This gives Rosie or Tina the time to fully assess your dental and gum health as well as any habits such as overbrushing, high sugar consumption, smoking or use of recreational drugs that may have an adverse effect on your dental and gum health.
They will carry out a full charting to map your gum condition. This gives us a baseline from where we can improve and monitor your dental health.
Direct access hygiene
If you do not have a dental hygienist or dental surgeon, it is still possible for you to arrange an appointment with our hygienists Rosie or Tina via direct access.

Oral hygiene advice
Most patients miss at least part of their mouth when cleaning. This can lead to gum disease or decay in hard to reach areas.
We map where you are missing cleaning, photograph these areas for you and then create a tailor-made oral hygiene program to ensure that you leave no plaque behind after cleaning.
Plaque is the biggest cause of dental disease. Remove it well and stay healthy longer!
Cleaning and stain removal
Modern lifestyles can easily cause staining of teeth – red wine, tea, coffee, curries and fruit juices can take the sparkle off naturally bright teeth.
Regular thorough cleaning and polishing can quickly restore the brightness of your teeth and bring back the confidence to smile.
Tooth whitening – simple, safe and effective
Tooth whitening using proprietary dental whitening products has been carried out for years to predictably improve the brightness of your teeth without damaging them.
Our hygienists and therapists Rosie and Tina can also carry out whitening of your teeth. Just ask at your next hygiene appointment.
