What I do

is strive to make your visit to Toothpick as calming and stress-free as possible, to transform oral hygiene into the enjoyable relaxing experience it should be. A comprehensive periodontal examination is undertaken for every patient and treatment prescribed as necessary.

What I don't

is judge you if you haven't been for a clean for a while, nor do I scold you or lecture you. Everyone will experience ups and downs in their oral health. I will help get you back to your peak with well maintained gums* that your body will thank you for.

The latest equipment from the Swiss company EMS "The Air-Flow Master Piezon", is used at Toothpick for pain-free removal of calculus/plaque and stain. It has an ultrasonic scaler and air-flow incorporated. The ability to alter the frequency of the ultrasonic scaler makes it more comfortable with the added option of using different antimicrobial washes.You are totally in control and if you don't particularly take to the ultrasonic cleaning then hand instruments are used.


Airflow is the leading teeth cleaning system which uses a spray of air, aesthetic polishing powder and gentle jet stream of water to rapidly remove surface stains and dental plaque. This non-invasive treatment, is kind to the tooth surface, non-damaging to the structure of the teeth and significantly improves tooth brightness, giving you noticeably lighter and brighter teeth. Air-flow allows for more effective cleaning, providing maximum patient comfort and a reduction in teeth sensitivity.
