We are pleased to have arranged our first Autism training session in March. As a team we would like to have a better understanding of Autism and would like to know more about ways in which we can make a difference to those with autism and their carers when they visit Ghyllmount. Looking forward to an interesting day with our trainer Jeremy Angus.
Many thanks to Brush-Baby for sending us a box of goodies as we think more about our patients with Autism and as we prepare for out Autism training day in March. Those with autism can find the chewable toothbrush particularity helpful. Thanks again to the brilliant Brush-Baby
Every year countless pieces of oral care products end up in landfill sites across the UK.
Here at Ghyllmount we are now working with Terracycle, to prevent them ending up in landfill.
Not only will we be helping the environment, but the waste you recycle with us also helps to fund schools or organisations.
Bring your old oral health products to the reception desk and we will do the rest for you.
Before Christmas the team were out and about delivering our Ghyllmount referral boxes to all the wonderful dental practices in Cumbria. It was really nice to meet so many lovely people during our visits and great to have received so many referrals since. Thank you, we do appreciate it.
