Dental Hygienists: Your Partner in Achieving a Healthy Smile at The Dental Spa Bondi Junction Bondi Junction


At The Dental Spa Bondi Junction, we prioritise your oral health and well-being. That’s why we offer a dedicated team of dental hygienists and oral hygienists to help you achieve and maintain a healthy, confident smile.

Understanding the Difference Between a Dental Hygienist and an Oral Health Therapist

While the terms “dental hygienist” and “oral health therapist” are often used interchangeably, there is a subtle distinction in their qualifications and scope of practice.

Dental Hygienists

Registered dental hygienists are the cornerstones of preventive dental care. They are qualified to perform various procedures crucial for maintaining oral health, including:

  • Teeth cleaning: This involves scaling and removing plaque and tartar buildup, which helps prevent gum disease and promotes overall oral health.
  • Oral hygiene education: The best dental hygienists guide patients on proper brushing and flossing techniques, offering personalised advice and instructions based on individual needs. They also provide dietary recommendations to promote optimal oral health.
  • Fluoride treatments: These treatments strengthen tooth enamel and prevent cavities, especially for children.

Oral Health Therapists

In addition to the procedures performed by dental hygienists, oral health therapists are qualified to perform more advanced procedures, including:

  • Fillings for children under 12: Oral health therapists can place fillings for children under 12 without requiring direct supervision from a dentist, providing convenient and efficient care for young patients.
  • Teeth whitening: Under certain circumstances, they can offer various teeth whitening options to help patients achieve a brighter smile.

It is important to note that the specific qualifications and scope of practice for both dental hygienists and oral health therapists may vary slightly depending on the state or territory.

Orthodontic Hygienist

Moreover, our team of orthodontic hygienists treats patients of all ages, from children experiencing early tooth development issues to adults seeking functional and cosmetic improvements.

They specialise in correcting misaligned teeth and jaws, utilising braces, retainers, and other dental appliances to create a healthy and aesthetically pleasing smile.

Maintaining Optimal Oral Health with Regular Dental Hygiene Appointments

Regular dental hygiene appointments are crucial for maintaining optimal oral health. These appointments not only remove plaque and tartar buildup, but they also allow your hygienist or therapist to:

  • Identify potential problems early on: Early detection of potential issues like gum disease or cavities allows for prompt intervention and treatment, preventing further complications and minimising future dental needs.
  • Provide personalised advice: Based on your individual oral health needs and risk factors, your hygienist or therapist can offer personalised advice on maintaining healthy teeth and gums. This may include recommendations for specific oral hygiene products, dietary modifications, or additional preventive measures.
  • Offer guidance on proper oral hygiene techniques: Through demonstrations and personalised instructions, your hygienist or therapist can help you improve your brushing and flossing techniques, ensuring you are effectively removing plaque and maintaining optimal oral hygiene between appointments.
