About hygienist services

Regular visits to our hygienists here at The Dalkey Clinic puts you in the best position for detecting any oral health problems before they become symptomatic or require treatment. Hygienists are trained to thoroughly clean your teeth and gums. Even the best electric toothbrush can’t reach every part of your mouth, and a hygienist can get to those hard-to-reach places to provide a professional deep clean.
