At Lifestyle Smiles we believe you deserve the best smile possible. That’s why we are committed to providing a Hygiene Department dedicated to your gum health.
Our Hygiene Department offers thorough and gentle care with a focus on maintaining a healthy foundation for the teeth. Our registered hygienists offer expert skills in eliminating bacteria and maintaining your oral health through scaling and root planning techniques. They are also responsible for preventative procedures such as dental x-rays, fissure sealants and personalised oral hygiene education.
