Dental Hygiene


The preventative approach to oral health at Hermitage Dental will help you maintain your teeth for life. Our dental hygienists have been specifically trained to perform preventative treatments and maintenance of your mouth, gums and teeth.
Our team of dental hygienists, therapists and dentists work together to provide you with a comprehensive dental care plan. Dental care does not end with brushing and flossing your teeth at home. Preventative dental appointments should be a part of your overall health plan.

Our oral health maintenance programs include periodontal health (gum health), x-ray evaluation if required and improving the health of your smile. These oral examinations allow us to gain a better understanding of the condition of your teeth and gums.
Our dental hygienists will clean your teeth to remove plaque, calculus deposits and stains, apply decay preventing agents where appropriate, provide oral hygiene instruction and recommend products for home use.

The team at Hermitage Dental understands that every patient is different. The care offered to one person may not be the highest priority for another. We create a custom dental cleaning and preventative care plan for the individual needs of each patient.

Why Is Dental Care So Important?


Regardless of your age, you can lose teeth if they are not regularly checked, cleaned and treated. Regular cleaning by a dental professional reduces the risk of gum disease. Gum disease is irreversible but can be managed by having regular check-ups.

At Hermitage Dental, our philosophy is to make oral hygiene the foundation for maintaining long-term relationships with our patients. This enables us to provide you with more affordable dental health services over the long term.

Regardless of your age and whether you have the perfect teeth or are experiencing gum issues, we can customise a preventative care routine for you. We design each treatment plan to suit the needs of the patient and ensure personalised care.
