Welcome to the Moreton Dental Care 'latest news' section, where we will post regular updates from our dental practice, our charity work and developments in the dentistry world.
A warm welcome to our new hygienist Cath Evens who will be helping to deliver our key hygienist services at Moreton Dental Care.
Cath, 32, from Eastham, expands our hygienists’ team to three, highlighting the importance the practice places on oral hygiene.
Good oral health is the cornerstone of good dentistry- it’s great to have sparkling white teeth, but it is also essential to have healthy gums. This is not only for good general health and wellbeing, but also to ensure a successful long-lasting result for people who have undergone complex dentistry such as having crowns and dental implants fitted.
Cath was a dental nurse for eight years before qualifying as a hygienist in 2016. In her free time Cath enjoys being with her large family- she is one of six and has 10 nieces and nephews. She also enjoys walking and going to music festivals.
We are delighted to welcome Cath who is working two days a week at MDC.
Cath started working here last summer to help cover Steph Farrell’s maternity leave, taking up the offer to become a permanent team member at New Year.
Patients can book an appointment directly with the hygienist- they do not have to see the dentist first. We recommend having a hygiene appointment every six months, although some patients may benefit from more frequent visits.
The Hygienist Services page on our website www.moretondental.co.uk has more information, including videos demonstrating correct toothbrushing and flossing methods.
Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, can affect your whole body. In recent years studies have shown that many health problems can be aggravated by poor oral hygiene, including stroke, respiratory infections, heart disease, diabetes and preterm or low birthweight babies.
