October Blog – “Dental Discussions”
Hi Everyone, Rebecca here again! We have had a really busy month in October, here is a little insight as to what has been going on …..
Linzi has joined us! We have a new happy face around the practice, Linzi will be our new practice manager. A great asset to the team, Linzi has previously worked with Anita and been a qualified Dental Nurse for nearly 10 years; she is like a breath of fresh air and already settled well into the practice. Linzi is originally from Hartlepool, but first worked with Anita in Peterlee, has worked in Sunderland, Newcastle, Durham and even all the way out to Haltwhistle. We are excited for our future with Linzi on board.
This month, like many other places in Sunderland, the North east and the rest of England; we ‘Wore it Pink’ for breast cancer awareness. Anita made cakes, (Lidl made my cakes lol), there were sweepstakes, we dressed the reception in pink, and we all wore pink tops and joined the fun to raise as much money as possible. All our patients were extremely generous, and our donations have been dropped off to the bank. Right now, more people are surviving breast cancer than ever before. But each year, around 11,500 more lives are lost to the disease; so, we would like to do anything we can to help.
October proved to be a very busy month for Invisalign. More patients started their journey, more came in for consultations and are now awaiting their aligners in November. An Invisalign journey for us isn’t just about ‘straightening teeth’, we work hard here to give our patients the best experience, along with the best result. While in Australia, I had the privilege to work with the top Invisalign provider in Western Australia, then with many fantastic dentists across Sydney and the Gold Coast; therefore, I have seen thousands of different cases. Anita and I are very passionate about Invisalign, we really believe in the product and its amazing results, we will continue to work as hard as possible to create beautiful smiles and most importantly make our patients happy. All of our Invisalign patients receive free teeth whitening, currently we are using Whitewash Professional; Anita is very happy with this product out of all the other teeth whitening products on the market, we have tried and tested many and believe this is the best for our patients.
October brought half term, which was a very busy week for us; Anita recognized the demand and we opened more appointments to accommodate everyone. There was a lot of smiley kids and a lot of stickers given out. Families travelled from Sunderland, Durham, Newcastle and even Hexham to get in and see us; the staff worked hard to make sure everyone was seen and happy. A big topic for us during half term was disclosing tablets. They are a chewable tablet using to make plaque visible. Harmless colored stains on the teeth indicate areas where plaque remains after brushing, providing feedback to improve brushing technique. We sell these in the practice for only £2.
In November the Christmas hype is starting and we really can’t wait! Myself personally, I have had three Christmases away from the family so I cannot wait to have a big family fun filled Christmas. I have family in Sunderland, Seaham, Houghton, Washington and even in Nottingham, so it is a busy time for me!
We have some great Christmas offers on, gift vouchers are available to purchase for any cosmetic treatment, such as: veneers, crowns, Invisalign, anti-wrinkle treatment, dermal filler, teeth whitening and airflow treatment. Another great offer is the teeth whitening and airflow package, which is £250 with a saving of £60, this is a great present for the person who has everything!
That sums up another month, we are excited to see what the lead up to Christmas brings.
