Dental Hygiene Therapist
GDC Registration No: 259891
Hi – I’m Rebecca and I am the dental hygiene therapist at Azure Dental.
I qualified initially from The University of Leeds in 2006 with a degree in Medical Microbiology and then took a further degree in Dental Hygiene and Therapy with the University of Teesside, graduating with a first in 2015.
Since qualifying, I have expanded my dental knowledge even further by undertaking a number of courses in periodontal disease, implant maintenance, restorative treatments and tooth whitening.
Within Azure Dental, I play both a preventive role; educating patients on diet and dental care routines to help improve and maintain oral health, and a practitioner role; treating periodontal disease and carrying out restorations, routine hygiene appointments, and tooth whitening.
I enjoy helping those who may be anxious about their visit to overcome any fears or phobias and I also enjoy seeing the growing confidence within those patients from appointment to appointment.
I feel that it is important that patients understand clearly any problem areas within the mouth and will take the time to explain and educate patients on their oral health care.
In my spare time, I enjoy art and crafts, cooking and both listening to and playing music as part of an orchestra. Most of all, Rebecca enjoys travelling and exploring new places.
If you have any concerns or issues with regards to missing teeth, loose teeth or dentures
and are looking at the potential solution of dental implant treatment then please get in touch.
How long will the implants last?
Implants are a very predictable treatment option. They have good long term success rates but require regular care and maintenance to ensure they remain healthy for as long as possible.
Do dental implants hurt?
Implants are generally placed under local anaesthetic. Once numb treatment is carried out with the very minimum of discomfort.
Are implants difficult to clean?
No, your dentist will show you how to clean any hard to reach areas around the implant. But you’ll mostly clean them as you would your normal teeth.
Are dental implants expensive?
Dental implants are designed to provide a long term solution to your gap(s). They require less frequent replacement than other solutions such as dentures or bridgework, making them an overall cost-effective solution to replace a missing tooth (teeth).
