Not just the cleaning lady

“Not just the cleaning lady”
 
There are many people who avoid seeing the hygienist as they find it a rather painful experience and often feel like they’re being told off!!
 
Here at the high street dental practice, we endeavour to provide a thorough but gentle clean, and treat our members how we’d like to be treated ourselves.
 
Gone are the days of being lectured at. It’s important to us to find out what’s important to you, and what YOU want to get out of your visits to the hygienist.
 
No longer is a “scale and polish” just a cosmetic procedure. There are now strong links between gum disease, diabetes and heart disease.
Bleeding gums are the first sign of trouble and shouldn’t be ignored. Bleeding is a sign of an underlying chronic infection or inflammation, it’s your body showing you that there is something is wrong.
 
If your gums bleed when you clean your teeth, then please come in and see one of our hygienists. We can work together on providing you with an oral care routine that is convenient and suits YOU.
 
So no lectures….. I promise!!!
Hope to see you soon

Straight Teeth. less Time. Clear Braces

Are you one of the thousands of adults who are unhappy, self-conscious or even embarrassed of your smile?  

Many adults spend their entire lives covering their mouths when they laugh, smile or talk.  They feel stuck because they do not want to wear metal braces for years or they are concerned that other corrective procedures could be too invasive or too expensive.  Now, there is an effective, safe and affordable cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle.

A revolutionary combination of proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials, and innovative thought – Six Month Smiles® utilises specialised clear braces to gently straighten and align teeth in an average time of just six months.
What Is Six Month Smiles?

Six Month Smiles® is a modern twist on tried-and-true orthodontics.  There is little debate within the orthodontic community that braces are the most widely used and most effective method to give patients straight, healthy teeth and a beautiful smile.  Six Month Smiles has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle.  Here is what makes Six Month Smiles so innovative …
Average treatment times of only six months
Six Month Smiles clear brackets and tooth-colored wires are barely visible
Use of braces has shown to provide the most conservative and predictable final result
Six Month Smiles Patient Tray Kits™ ensure that your appointments are fast and comfortable
Low forces and short overall treatment times increase comfort, safety, and hygiene
Six Month Smiles is typically less expensive than traditional braces, aligner therapy, or veneers
Six Month Smiles® is the best choice for adults interested in quickly and affordably making life-changing cosmetic improvements to their smiles.

Man of the Year

There comes a time in a mans life when recognition is not a reason for doing. However when you are labelled with an accolade like Man of the Year I hear Jaspal Sandhu saying
“who?”.
It was a great honour and surprise when our very own Principal dentist was recognised for his charity and community work in the East Grinstead Observer as one of the Heroes of the last 12 months.

On Your Bike

At the later part of last year our receptionist Iva broke her collar bone in a car crash which caused her great discomfort and a lot of pain. However this did not stop her from taking part in a sponsored spinning in aid of Young Epilepsy in January 2012. Not only was she one of the last to ‘get off her bike” she lasted 3 hours 34 minutes. A classic example of being true to the community and herself.
