The Bancroft Way . . . putting patients first

Your Dental Hygiene Appointment

Dental hygiene and the treatment of gum disease are the foundations of great dental health and usually the priority in your dental treatment journey. Prevention of dental disease is our key message and by having great preventive care you can minimise the need for future complex dental treatments.

We understand that prevention plays a large part in modern day dentistry and working as a team with our dental hygienists helps us deliver great preventive care. All our patients are encouraged to see our dental hygienists for assessment of gum health, preventive care plans and treatment of gum disease. Our hygienists also deliver preventive treatments such as fluoride applications and fissure sealants, they can even give advice about smoking cessation.


At Bancroft Dentistry in Hitchin, we also allow Direct Access to our dental hygienists which means you don’t have to see a dentist first. Our hygienists are well trained and experienced so can offer screening as part of their appointments, for instance, oral cancer screening. If you would like to receive dental hygiene care here then just call and book in or complete the enquiry form.
