AirFlow Stain Removal

“Kate Demonstrates How Gentle But Effective AirFlow Stain Removal Is”

AirFlow™ stain removal is an effective way of removing simple tooth staining caused by your everyday lifestyle.

AirFlow™ stain removal is not teeth whitening but it will considerably improve the brightness of your teeth and give you a fantastic fresh and sparkling mouth in an instant.

Here’s how it works … AirFlow™ uses water pressure along with tiny carbonated particles on the surface and in between each of your teeth to remove stains.

AirFlow™ stain removal is an ideal cost effective pre-treatment to Teeth Whitening and can give you a bright, healthy mouth and smile.

Health & prevention

A plaque-free mouth is likely to stay strong and healthy for life and our hygiene treatments will positively contribute to this outcome. You will receive tailored advice for improving your oral hygiene routine between visits and younger patients are taught how to establish good oral hygiene habits to avoid dental problems in the future.

Healthy mouths are wonderful: they are problem free, pain free and decay free. They are also a good indication of a healthy body and great general wellbeing.

Our practice continually invests in the most modern technology (the latest example, our new AirFlow™ polish system) to ensure our patients get the best service possible. Our inter-oral cameras and digital x-rays help us to show patients the areas underneath, between and inside their teeth.

They are an excellent education tool for both patients and clinicians and allow us to explain what the different treatments achieve and why we need to carry them out.

Meet Your Hygiene Team – Loraine, Kate & Ruth


New patients who require hygiene therapy are given the opportunity to attend a one-hour consultation with one of our excellent hygienists, during which she will spend time discussing the concept of prevention and the role of the patient in the maintenance of good oral health.

The appointment allows time for active initial treatment, as appropriate, and the patient leaves with a beautifully clean mouth, plenty of advice on the best hygiene routine to continue at home, as well as a customised oral health kit and a tailored maintenance programme.

We are also experts in bite therapy, the treatment of headaches, excessive tooth wear, which is linked to stress and excessive tooth-to-tooth contact in clenching or grinding, and anti-snoring devices. 


740 Dental in Bournemouth is among a small group of forward thinking practices to recruit a dental hygiene/therapist. Dental therapists are amply qualified to carry out a range of routine dental procedures, allowing dentists to concentrate on more complex and advanced treatments.

Our dental hygiene/therapist, Kate, focuses on the treatment of gum disease and the prevention and management of dental decay. She also has responsibility for a range of procedures such as oral assessments, hygiene therapy, fillings, impressions, fissure sealants and fluoride treatments.

Like dentists, dental hygiene/therapists strictly adhere to the GDC’s standards of dental care.

Direct Access To Dental Hygienist And Dental Therapist 

Direct Access means patients now have the option to access treatments from  Dental Hygienists and Dental Therapists directly! 

As of May 1st 2013 The General Dental Council permits patients the option to directly access the services of a Dental Hygienist and/or Dental Therapists without out having to see a Dentist prior to their appointment. Previously, a Dentist had to examine a patient to prescribe any treatments. 

Dental Hygienists/Therapists are registered trained dental professional who help patients maintain their oral health by preventing and treating periodontal disease and promoting good oral health practice. Our practice policy gives patients the option to access certain private treatments, within a Dental Hygienists/Therapists scope of practice directly without having to see a Dentist first. Not all treatments are included. If a referral to a dentist is necessary, the Hygienist or Therapist will explain the reasons for the referral and seek the patient’s consent to be referred.

See What Our Patients Say

"I've never had a fear of going to the dentist"

Highly recommended. Richard is my dentist who sees my whole family and has done for years, he is the best in the business (in my opinion). Katie the hygienist is the only one I like seeing and so glad she’s back from maternity! Due to these two I’ve never had a fear of going to the dentist.

Says G Betambeau

"always so kind and understanding"

Angela O’Regan is a truly wonderful dentist. She is also always so kind and understanding. I truly do not know where I would be without her. Ruth is my dental hygienist. She too is excellent and always so helpful in every way. They are both amazing and I am always so grateful to both of them.

Says E Mills

"I've regained trust in the dental profession"

If it weren’t for Andrew Prynne and the amazing team at 740 Dental I don’t know if I’d have ever regained any trust in the dental profession. More importantly, our children are happy and confident to attend their appointments and take on board all the advice offered to them. We always feel fully informed and I know that their comfort with any procedures is of upmost importance to the whole team.

Says C Wilson

"extremely skilled, always friendly & welcoming"

I was previously a nervous patient but can’t even remember that now. I lost a front tooth in an accident in my twenties, we struggled keeping a bridge in place. He suggested I get an implant. He is extremely skilled, always friendly & welcoming. Quick to sort out any dental emergencies. Ruth is my hygienist and she is also amazing.

Says C Drummond

"Literally the best dentist I have ever been too"

Literally the best dentist I have ever been too! I’ve always been scared and had huge anxiety attacks whilst in the waiting room but since moving here, Andrew has made me feel so comfortable and I don’t dread going to the dentist. Lovely staff, can’t fault anything.

Says A Meek

"understands people's fears of dentists"

Sharon is really good and I would highly recommend her for anyone who struggles going to the dentist. She is kind, takes things at your pace and understands peoples fears of dentists. Thank you so much.
