Alysha Gupta (GDC Reg No: 278450) gained a Foundation Degree in Dental Nursing from the University of Northampton, and a Degree in Dental Hygiene & Dental Therapy from the University of Portsmouth.
With a caring and gentle approach, Alysha is a friendly and approachable member of our team. She enjoys helping patients overcome their fear of dentistry, as well as educating patients about the importance of good oral health techniques so that they can keep their teeth and gums in optimum condition between appointments.
As well as doing all the work that a dental hygienist does, Alysha's role as a dental therapist means that she can also carry out some dental procedures that patients are more used to a dentist doing. She can do fillings, extract 'baby teeth', place pre-formed crowns on baby teeth and do treatments using all the materials a dentist would use. Like a dental hygienist, Alysha can also take dental x-rays (these are used to diagnose problems and decide on the possible treatment). She can also place fissue sealants, apply flouride varnishes and give fluoride treatments. She can also carry out teeth whitening treatment under a prescription from your dentist.
Passionate about she does, Alysha regularly attends professional development courses and conferences to keep up to date in the latest techniques in modern dentistry.
