Oral Health Education

The Importance of Good Oral Health

Oral health is central to our general wellbeing. Alpha House Dental Practice can now offer appointments, on referral from a dentist, with our trained and accredited Oral Health Educators. They can teach patients about diseases and conditions that affect the oral cavity including prevention, treatment and management. Topics covered include:

  • Plaque, calculus and staining
  • Caries prevention
  • Management of gingivitis and gum disease
  • Tooth surface loss and sensitivity
  • Fluoride
  • Anti- plaque agents
  • Nutrition and Diet advice

Before I came here I hadn't been to a dentist for nearly 30 years. It was only when my gums became sore and I kept having dreams that my teeth were about to fall out, that I finally decided I really needed to do something.

Mr Hussain completed a thorough examination, in which he took the time to really listen to me, without being at all judgemental. The treatment and recommendations that he made have completely changed how I feel about my teeth, and I am truly grateful to him and his team. If anyone is looking for a new dentist, where you are really treated as an individual, and will receive excellent care and treatment, I would certainly recommend this surgery.
