Our Dental Hygienists Katie, Tammy and Tiffany support our dentists by providing the full range of dental hygiene treatments, and guidance on effective preventative care to protect your teeth against gum disease.

With Direct Access You Can Now See Our Hygienists Directly

In the past, you had to see a dentist at the same time as seeing a hygienist in Jersey but thankfully now the General Dental Council has recognised the high standard of care provided by dental hygienists and therapists. This means you can now book an appointment to see our excellent dental hygienists or our dental therapists without the need to see book a dentist appointment at the same time. This is called Direct Access.

New Patient Programme

Dental Hygiene Assessment and Initial Cleaning 45mins

An initial hygiene assessment and clean is essential for any new patient as part of their dental care, whether you are beginning your self-improvement journey or simply want to have confidence in your dental wellbeing. At this appointment one of our Dental Hygienists will assess your mouth and gums, they will also record your baseline oral health score and take intra oral pictures.

Your Dental Hygienist will look at your personal oral hygiene regime and give professional advice, while recommending products based on your individual needs. Whatever your situation, whether you have considerations to be taken into account such as dentures or braces, our treatment is always tailored to your own health and well-being requirements. Your appointment will also include scaling and debris removal using an ultrasonic water scaler and hand instrumentation. This is a thorough and gentle dental cleaning treatment that will leave your mouth feeling clean and revitalised.

Your Dental Hygienist may ask you to return for further hygiene treatment so that we can assure you of the strength of your oral health. This will depend on the following factors:

  • The current condition of your gums
  • The amount of plaque/ scale/ stain  
  • Any deep pocketing
  • A specific area of your mouth that needs to be revisited/reviewed
  • The need to review your oral health regime, progress and challenges
  • Length of time since your last visit to a Dental Hygienist

Regular Maintenance 30-45 minutes

If you’re a regular attender who wants that minty fresh feeling, this classic clean is for you. Patients will benefit from gentle removal of hard and soft deposits using a combination of ultrasonic water scaling techniques and hand instrumentation. This is followed by a full mouth polish to remove the everyday staining and includes screening for gum disease. This treatment will aid cleaning, prevent further build up and most importantly help you maintain a healthy mouth so you can leave smiling with confidence.

For those patients with heavy, stubborn staining, a longer appointment for further dental cleaning may be required. Your Dental Hygienist will then use their state of the art air polishing system to clean those difficult to reach areas. This is followed by a full mouth polish to smooth the teeth and make them feel squeaky clean, for a sparkling smile.

Supportive Care 30-45 minutes

There are some patients who require added support with their dental care and this may involve more regular visits with our Hygiene Team. This could be for reasons including previous history of gum disease or tooth decay, or medical conditions that may influence oral health and need additional observation. All Supportive Care visits will include a thorough scale and removal of any build up, using the ultrasonic water scaler along with gentle hand instrumentation.

Assessment of your oral hygiene habits will also be a key part of Supportive Care visits, to ensure that you are aware of any modifications that could benefit your oral health, such as the use of dental floss, for example.

Cosmetic Clean 20 minutes

A Cosmetic Clean can be used alongside your Regular Maintenance visits. It is ideal for patients who are up-to-date with their regular programme of care and have a healthy mouth, but have front teeth that tend to build up scale/tartar or staining between their regular appointments. Your Dental Hygienist will focus on the teeth towards the front of the mouth to make your teeth feel cleaner and appear noticeably brighter.

Periotherapy Program

Our Dentist and Hygiene Team will recommend our Periotherapy Programme to patients who are suffering from gum disease. This a specialised dental hygiene treatment designed consisting of several stages, which will require Dental Hygienist visits over several months.* Your Dental Hygienist will explain your condition every step of the way and will work with you on preventative care to improve your gum condition and strengthen your teeth against gum disease.

Our Periotherapy Programme aims to:

  • Improve your daily plaque control and oral cleaning regime to improve your overall oral hygiene (very important to the success and result of the treatment)
  • Remove hard and soft plaque above and below the gum line
  • Reduce bacteria in the mouth
  • Reduce pocket depths between the tooth and gum to make the mouth more manageable to clean
  • Reduce bleeding of the gums
  • Prevent tooth loss in the future

* Please note, depending on your gums and response to the initial Periotherapy Programme, a further course of treatment may be required. Your Dental Hygienist will always advise you following the results of the first treatment.

PATIENT FEEDBACK

  • 'The staff there are fabulous and worked hard to accommodate my desire to get my teeth finished before going on holiday. I would definitely recommend this practice, as I now feel confident in my smile! Thank you for being so brilliant, friendly and accommodating.'

  • 'If I were to sum up the practice I would say patient-focused, outstanding in its’ field and one which just gets it right.'

  • 'All the staff at The Cosmetic Dental Group are very friendly and professional. The dental work I needed has been completed by Dr Willetts, and I am very pleased with the result. The cost was a lot less than I had originally been quoted, and no need for a visiting Consultant as Dr Willetts had the necessary expertise.'

  • 'All of the staff are really kind and friendly and in particular, I must thank Jonathan Wood for all the time and hard work he has put in to my teeth. I am very glad that I came here and would definitely recommend it to others.'

  • 'Straight teeth, better pronunciation, and a fuller lip. Jonathan explained everything as we went along, and the before and after photos were gob smacking - what a difference!'

  • Meeting and being treated by Jonathan Wood changed my life. Jonathan was recommended to me by a friend who told me that she was sure he could help me. Over the years I had investigated having my bite corrected and was told the same thing again and again. My bite was difficult to fix. One dentist told me that teeth would need to be removed and even then, he could not guarantee that the treatment would be successful stating that it was highly probable the teeth and jaw would shift back to their original starting point. There was no jaw surgery or extraction of teeth. Eighteen months later the braces came off and I felt like a new person both physically and emotionally. I'm not sure you can put a price on what I have gained. I will be eternally grateful to Jonathan, his wonderful assistants, and the friendly, warm team at the Cosmetic Dental Group.

  • 'It’s not a case of not affording to go, you just can't afford not to go. They make going to the dentist pleasurable.'

  • 'The Cosmetic Dental Group are an absolute gem! Always friendly and helpful, the surgery is a pleasure to attend.'

  • 'I’d just like to say how much I enjoy knowing I’m coming to the practice because when I come, I’m received right royally really. It’s a case of ‘how are you’ and a smile, the girls take my coat and it’s just so lovely. When you visit everybody is so responsive and wanting you to enjoy your session.'

  • 'Having undergone quite major dentistry over the past year, I can highly recommend The Cosmetic Dental Group.'

  • 'CDG comes highly recommended, the entire team are professional, friendly and know their stuff. Well worth a visit.'

  • 'I've had such a great experience. Everything was explained to me clearly and in a way I would understand. I feel as though I have had much more for my money and time compared to other dentists I have been to.'

  • 'Having a lovely white smile projects a really healthy, attractive image that creates a positive response from everyone. I am really thrilled with the results and will be more than happy to recommend The Cosmetic Dental Group to my friends and clients. They have a really good reputation so I know they will be in good hands.'

  • 'As my dental appointment approached I was awash with trepidation. I needn’t have worried as the wonderful, welcoming staff and practitioners made my visit a dental delight! My dreaded visit turned out to be positive, painless and palatable! So much so, I’m paying them another visit in 6 months time.'

  • 'I feel like my teeth are 100% better than they were before. I am very pleased. It’s like a weight off my mind. I didn’t know how conscious I was and so now having had the treatment, it has given me that little bit more confidence to smile freely without thinking of my teeth.'

  • 'I am extremely pleased with the speed and quality of the work I have had from Jonathan Wood- a complete transformation with no pain at all.'

  • 'The Dental Health Plan at the practice has also been really good for me as it’s a great way of having your regular appointments paid for so you don’t have to think about it. You pay for the plan monthly, which is very reasonable and obviously for that you are getting your two examinations and two hygiene visits.'

  • 'Two words but packed with more gratitude than you will ever know….thank you.'

  • 'Just a short note of thanks for dealing personally with my problem. I felt so much better within a day and want you to know that I do appreciate the time taken and 'gentle' approach.'

  • 'I now have a smile that people comment on all the time and am more than happy with all the treatment I received. I would recommend the practice to anyone.'

  • 'Katie is always punctual, well turned out, she greets you with an amazing smile and makes you feel so at ease. She is so professional and courteous and clearly is incredibly knowledgeable about all areas of dental hygiene. She is very thorough yet efficient at the same time.'
