Welcome Dr Chris Rutter - Another reason to smile!
August 2020

We are very excited to welcome Dr Chris Rutter to the team at Ghyllmount where he will be offering a wide range of teeth straightening systems from September.

If you are interested in seeing what Chris can do for you, send in a picture and he'll be in touch with you directly for a chat about your options and what would work best for you.

Chris qualified from the University of Birmingham in 2008 and returned to his native North East where he completed his initial training with our very own Dr Andy Ratsey!

He offers a pragmatic friendly opinion and a wide range of options to address any concerns you may have and performs a range of aesthetic procedures to help you achieve a healthy smile.

The main scope of Chris' practice is providing smile design along with tooth alignment and minimally invasive dentistry. Chris provides teeth straightening with the Invisalign, ClearCorrect, Inman, ClearSmile and Quick Straight Teeth systems where he has been recognised as a brand ambassador for his work.

Outside of work Chris is a father to two children and a long suffering Sunderland AFC fan.

CQC inspection
July 2020

Last Friday we were one of the first Practices to be inspected by the CQC under the new Covid Emergency Support Framework.
This involved an in depth online discussion with the Inspector and we received our report today.
In the words of the Inspector we are " Doing an amazing job and you should be incredibly proud of yourselves and your staff. Lucky patients to have such a great service."

We are back!
June 2020

We are all pleased to be back at work and opening our doors for more routine treatment. 

Dentistry as we knew it will be a lot different and all of our staff need to adapt to our new ways of working. We really would appreciate everyone's patience at this time.

Have you had dental problems during lockdown?

If you have been putting things off because you didn’t feel it was an emergency or you didn’t feel safe, now's the time to let us know.

We are now in a position to book examination and hygiene appointments too, so give us call or email. We are ready and waiting for you!
