Tricia Jones is a qualified hygienist currently working at No. 5 Dental in Surrey. She is highly experienced in providing hygiene care and advice for all patients.
At the practice, Tricia can perform deep scaling treatments under local anaesthetic for periodontal problems. During appointments with Tricia, patients receive detailed advice regarding oral hygiene including correct tooth-brushing techniques. Tricia also has experience working with children and can use food dye tablets to demonstrate to them the areas of teeth that they are missing out when brushing. In addition, she can help patients by analysing their diet to establish whether food or drink intake may be affecting tooth wear and decay. Tricia uses a non-drilling technique called air abrasion which is kinder to the teeth. She can also offer prescription-strength fluoride toothpaste and antimicrobial mouthwashes to aid with oral care.
The clinic itself is easily accessible for patients across Surrey and boasts modern facilities with wheelchair access on the whole ground floor. TVs are fitted in the treatment rooms above the dental chair so patients are comfortable during treatments. Patient comfort is at the forefront of the practice philosophy and staff are highly experienced at helping patients who may be anxious about dental treatment.
