Dental Hygienists

Our Hygiene Department is made up of friendly, experienced and reliable dental care professionals that are dedicated to putting your needs first.

Suzy Thomas - Dental Hygienist GDC No. 4042

Suzy qualified from Guy’s Hospital in 1991. Shortly afterwards she was employed part-time by the Royal College of Surgeons, Huntarian Dental Unit as a hygienist involved in research into Gum/Periodontal Disease, an area that she is still passionate about.

She will help with the ongoing maintenance of your gums, cosmetic work and dental implants in a structured, caring and sympathetic manner. Suzy continues to attend courses to update her skills and keep at the forefront of dental treatments. Her most recent course is one named ‘Comfortably numb’, which involves the use of a highly effective anaesthetic system which doesn’t require an injection. She would be more than happy to discuss this in more detail with you.

Jodie Kendall - Dental Hygienist GDC No. 286520

Jodie graduated from the University of Essex in 2019 with a degree in Oral Health Science. She has gained experience treating patients with an extreme dental phobia which has led her to adopt a ‘tell-show-do’ method in all aspects of her treatments.

Jodie is a great listener, recognising that in order to achieve the best results, a treatment plan must be uniquely tailored to each individual patient, showing kindness and empathy throughout all aspects of treatment.

In her spare time, Jodie devotes her time to rescuing dogs from the streets in Montenegro.

Did you know it is now possible to see a Dental Hygienist without first seeing a Dentist for an oral examination. The hygienist will not carry out a complete examination and it is still necessary for you to have regular check-ups according to your individual needs. This is usually from every 6 months to every two years. Only a Dentist will be able to fully diagnose any oral conditions and provide a treatment plan.
