We will provide you with expert advice on the tools & techniques to use to ensure fresh breath and clean, healthy teeth. Using a combination of the skill and care of our hygiene team & your own oral hygiene routines at home, you can expect your teeth and gums to be in optimum condition for life.

  • 90% of the work we dentists do is totally and utterly preventable, and if we can get our patients working with our hygienists, we can prevent so much dental disease.
  • Plaque is the enemy of dental health ~ our hygienists will assess your homecare routines, remove hard plaque and most importantly they will work with you on the skills, tools and techniques to remove or control plaque from every surface of every tooth, every day which equals gum and tooth health, less fillings and a healthy heart!
  • Good dental health means patients are at a lower risk of future dental pain and problems, fresher breath and a better looking smile and are less likely to lose teeth and have better heart and organ health.
  • For many patients it’s more important to see a hygienist than it is to see a dentist as they help patients to stay dentally healthy and reduce their risks of future treatment.


You don’t have to be a registered patient here at The Riley Dental Studio to enjoy the benefits of our hygiene treatments – you can book in as a ‘Direct Access’ patient at any time. You will still have access to all of our hygiene treatments and you will enjoy exactly the same genuine, caring and professional customer service as all of our other patients.

Simply contact our reception team so we can discuss & identify your needs and advise you on which treatments will deliver your most healthy smile.



What do our patients think?

I needed a significant amount of work completing on my teeth in preparation for my wedding after finding out that previous work completed elsewhere had not been done to a good standard.

Gareth and the team were always friendly and welcoming and made me feel calm and relaxed every time I came through the door. I felt safe in the knowledge that my teeth were being given the best of care and Gareth was an absolute perfectionist when it came to how my teeth looked, what more could you ask for when it comes to your teeth!

The end result of the work was that my teeth not only looked beautiful on my wedding day, but they were also healthy and in better condition than they had been for a long time.

I am very grateful to all of Team Riley and Gareth for ensuring that my wedding memories were ones that I could look back on with a beautiful smile!

Our Hygienists & Hygiene Therapists at The Riley Dental Studio will sometimes ask you to read our information regarding gum disease.

Most adults in the UK have gum disease to some degree and most people experience it at least once. It’s much less common in children.

Symptoms of gum disease include:

  • your gums bleeding when you brush your teeth, floss or eat hard foods such as apples
  • your gums becoming swollen, red and sore

Gum disease can lead to:

  • bad breath and a bad taste in the mouth
  • your gums shrinking
  • your teeth becoming loose or falling out

We are here to help you and advise you and we will help you with all the tools and techniques needed to reduce your risk of gum disease.
