It's time to be recognised as a vital team member in your dental practice. You will transform from a hygienist/therapist to a holistic healthcare professional. We believe hygienists play an integral role on the delivery of healthcare and should be viewed as clinicians, the same as dentists, and not as auxiliaries.

You will become a hygienist/therapist with a more rounded and grounded approach to treatment cases, which will not only help your patients and patient journey but impress your dental colleagues just as much.

Our in-depth theory together with teaching you perfect technique will make you a great hygienist that stands out at your practice. Once you transform into a master hygienist you will be able to charge a premium for your expertise.

The in-person course will be filled with small group discussions and one-to-one hands-on teaching on hand instrumentation, ultrasonics and Airflow. If you want to also revisit material via the online course you will be provided with a special discount code for this.
