Dental Hygiene at Sunnydale Dental, Ashford, Kent

At Sunnyside Dental it is no longer necessary to see a dentist before booking a Dental Hygiene appointment. We offer direct access to our hygienists to all patients without having to be registered members of the practice.

Please read the GDC statement on Direct Access by clicking here

The 2009 Adult dental health survey showed 54% of the population to have bleeding gums and 45% to have active periodontal (gum) disease. Please find  more information on gum disease and how it can be treated on our Treatment Guide page. Sunnyside Dental has a menu of dental hygiene services designed to suit your differing needs and requirements.

We aim to offer a new approach to make high quality dental care accessible to all.
