If you’re looking for a highly rated and experienced dental hygienist near you in Southampton, our friendly and modern clinic can help.
Healthy gums are the foundation of healthy teeth and this is where it all starts with an assessment of your gum health. Our dental hygiene therapist and dentist will assess your gums and determine whether gum disease is present.
They will then advise a personalised preventive plan and teeth cleaning treatment if needed to establish the best dental and gum health you can achieve. All our patients are encouraged to visit the dental hygienist for thorough gum examination and cleaning if necessary.
Once you have reached a good level of gum health they will advise a maintenance protocol so you can keep a great level of gum health. Our general health and our gum health can change through life so we are vigilant to keep monitoring this by encouraging regular review appointments.
For most this is six monthly and for those with active gum disease it may be more frequent such as three monthly. For some patients with a more resistant gum disease our hygienist and dentists will collaborate and if needed will refer for specialist care.

“It takes me 1 hour drive to get to Bridgeways Dental but it is worth it. I am very pleased with George and the team. From the first appointment George explained and then emailed me each treatment steps and the costs for each step. George fitted two dental implants for me which I am very happy about. George, many, many thanks.
I have also met the hygienist team – Angelika and her assistant which did a great job to my teeth, thank you ladies. My teeth are whiter now so I am not ashamed to smile anymore. Finally, their team. Lizzie – your heart is in the right place, Terri and Chloe are also very nice and professional, many thanks ladies. I am happy I’ve met you all.”
