Our Dental Hygienist
Her experience encompasses normal routine dental practice hygiene work and providing dental hygiene support for a Periodontist. She enjoys both aspects of hygiene practice and the variety of work maintains her interest and enthusiasm.
Most Modern Technology
Sharon has at her disposal all the most modern equipment and materials with which to treat patients suffering all levels of gum disease. Using Piezo scalers she is able to clean all the root surfaces of the teeth under local anesthesia without even the slightest discomfort to the patient. In patients with very advanced periodontitis, she is then able to use a diode laser to obliterate all bacterial plaque leaving the areas beneath the gum free of plaque. This allows for the resolution of inflammation.
Sharon has worked alongside Colin Priestland and a two-way communication has been established allowing open discussion of individual patients that achieves the best possible treatment planning and an individualised approach to each and every patient.
Commitment To Education
Sharon places great importance on keeping up to date with developments in oral health information, implant related oral health issues and scientific knowledge on gum disease and the various approaches to its treatment. She shares her commitment to, and belief in non-surgical therapy with Dr. Colin Priestland.
Sharon’s Notes On Patient Care:
“Everyone is different, and everyone has a different problem which needs a unique approach and an individualised treatment plan; this is what makes my job so interesting and at the same time challenging. Dental hygiene can play a major part in improving the patient’s oral health, confidence and their whole quality of life.”
