Looking for a good hygienist in Exmouth?
Katie Willis, (GDC Registration number: 114473), is an experienced and respected hygienist who works with us every Tuesday, and as soon as Covid restrictions ease, every Wednesday as well. She offers our patients a valuable, Dental Hygiene service which can effectively complement their regular dental check-up and clean with their dentist and make a significant difference to oral health and appearance.
Katie qualified as a Dental Hygienist at the Eastman Dental Hospital in 2007 and has worked in some high quality dental practices in London, Bath and Devon. We are delighted to have her as part of our team at Bicton Place.
Good oral hygiene is critical in preventive dentistry and many of our patients see our hygienist regularly in between their six-nine monthly visit with their dentist in order to maintain a higher level of oral hygiene. As a Dental Hygienist, Katie has been trained to carry out scaling and polishing and can spend longer with a patient on this than a dentist normally can. She is also expert at teaching patients how to look after their teeth and gums. Regular professional cleaning to remove plaque and tartar, combined with looking after your teeth and gums properly at home, will help keep your mouth really healthy. Sometimes our patients may need to spend a number of appointments with Katie in order to get their gums healthy and ready for the dentist to restore teeth with crowns and fillings.
For our patients a 40 minute initial visit and a 30 minute maintenance appointment with Katie costs £54.50 (£49.05 for Denplan members with their 10% off). If more work is required, a 40 minute appointment may be recommended at a cost of £72.50 (reduced to £65.25 for Denplan members). For non-registered patients, there is a cost of £75.00 for an initial appointment.
