Our full time receptionist and part time Practice Manager
At the practice we have a number of hygienists who use their own surgeries. All hygienists are highly skilled and form an integral part in helping our patients maintain good oral health. It is good practice to have your teeth professionally cleaned twice a year. The hygienist also looks at the general health of your gums and dentition and will recommend a visit to Dr David Paul if they notice something out of order.
