Heather and Angela from Eden Mencap were consulting with us at Gyllmount Dental, discussing ways to make a visit to the dentist more comfortable for people with Autism. Some great suggestions made today. Thanks Heather amd Angela for your insight.
The team at Ghyllmount would like to reassure all patients and visitors that we are taking all precautions to keep our patients and staff safe during the coronavirus outbreak. You will notice some changes as you visit the practice;
On booking appointments and entering the practice you will be asked a series of questions. We are now screening all patients and visitors.
We are pleased to offer an additional temperature screening service at Ghyllmount and we would be happy to take your temperature before your appointment.
We would ask that if your appointment is non urgent and you are feeling unwell around the time of your appointment that you consider rearranging for another time.
We are cleaning the surfaces, banisters and door handles at regular intervals throughout the day.
We have hand sanitisers for your use when entering and exiting the building. (We would be grateful if you do not remove the hand sanitisers as we don't have a limitless supply)
For the moment,we have removed the magazines from the patient lounge to avoid across infection from them.
Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.
Many thanks to Luiza Oliver photography for taking new pictures of our dentist's. Looking Good guys!
We got some lovely feedback following nurses Laura and Leanne's visit to the Kiddlywinks.
"A huge thank you to the lovely Ghyllmount Dentist team for their amazing interactive workshop with our kiddies. The children learnt so much about healthy practice and this was enhanced by building up the children’s knowledge skills through the sensitive teaching from the Leanne and her colleague . Thank you so much for sharing your time with us and for providing our kiddies with lovely new toothbrushes fingers crossed for fewer cavities and healthy happy smiles"
Many thanks to our Michael Ball/Alfie Boe competition winner, Pamela Armstrong for sending us pictures of her meet and greet with the 2 singers. She had thoroughly enjoyed her evening and was delighted to have met them. Many thanks to Michael Ball for his kind donation which helped us raise over £1000 for The Royal British Legion.
We are delighted to introduce our patients to Jazz Procter. Jazz joins us a dually-qualified dental hygienist and dental therapist and will work at Ghyllmount on Friday's.

As Ghyllmount goes Green, you may start to see some small changes during your visit. We have started with recyclable cups in surgery alongside the aspirator tips that are made from sugar cane which is a sustainable product. Disposable items such as toilet roll and paper towels are now used from recycled paper.
We are pleased to donate a box of dental instruments that we no longer use to Dentaid today. We hope they will be of some use.
We are delighted to have our new 3D scanner delivered. We have had a great few days training to use this. Many thanks to Esm Mark Barry for all his help and patience! The team are all very excited to start using this. One step closer to helping the environment by eliminating our use of plastic impression trays
