Myfanwy Williams – Hygienist

Myfanwy Williams – HygienistMyfanwy Williams, Senior Dental Hygienist, has been at Pascoe Vale Dental Group since November 2011. She has worked in a number of dental practices in Melbourne, working with dentists with varying specialty fields in dentistry.

Finding the career of dental hygienist a little later in life, with more life experience, meant that Myfanwy was very sure of her career choice. She is dedicated to improving the health of patients’ gums (periodontal health), and believes in getting the job done thoroughly in the most gentle manner possible. Good periodontal health is essential for overall oral health, and also assists with general health. She also performs teeth whitening, and gets a lot of satisfaction from seeing the results it can achieve.
Myfanwy finds it very satisfying working with patients to improve their oral health, especially if they are just starting out on the journey of looking after their teeth and gums, and particularly if it has been a while since their last visit.
