Tina is our dental hygienist and therapist having trained at the University of Otago in New Zealand

Tina has a particular interest in the treatment of patients with advanced, destructive periodontal disease and peri-implant disease and care of patients with extensive dental work.

Health is first, last, everything at LCIAD.

The best way to prevent future dental problems is regular hygiene care and advice.

We can arrange hygiene visits, check-ups and dental x-rays in one hygienist visit for existing patients.

You can see Tina even if you are not registered with a dentist at LCIAD.

Dental Hygiene

Dental hygiene is the cornerstone of our success. Simply put, more frequent hygienist visits (ideally every three months) lead to better long-term dental health, less disease and greater longevity of the results of treatment.

Tina is a dynamic, friendly and experienced professional whom we immediately formed a professional bond with when she first locumed at LCIAD to cover Rosie during her wedding in September 2022.

During your hygiene and therapy appointments, we document any problem areas you may have and work with you to prevent disease progressing and help you maintain immaculate dental hygiene throughout your life.
