Well done to our very own 'tooth fairy' Leanne for setting up her new youtube channel showcasing her oral hygiene videos for kids. Leanne spent a lot of time during lockdown putting together and sharing these fun videos and activities for children.
We would like to give a very warm welcome to our two new Apprentice nurses Shanelle and Charlotte. They joined the team this week and we are very excited to have them here. We think you will both fit in perfectly
As we have a change around at the practice we are delighted with our new 'wall of fame' showcasing our awards from over the last 11 years. We are very proud of our achievements and some great memories with staff past and present.
We are super excited to launch our 'Ghyllmount Gallery' showcasing the beautiful photography of Roy Fleming https://www.royfleming.co.uk/
We have moved our awards from the stairs and corridors to a new 'Wall of Fame' and replaced them with Roy's photographs. When normal service resumes, hopefully you will have more time to enjoy them. They are of course available to buy.
We had some great entries for our National Smile Month childrens competition. After looking through them all very carefully we have picked a winner for the best poem and the best picture. Here are the winning entries. Well done and thank you so much to everyone for entering
As you will all know the use of face masks in shops becomes mandatory from Friday 24 July and we have decided to roll that out at Ghyllmount too. So when you visit us please bring a mask along with you*
We do have masks available if you don't have one and we will ask for a donation of £1.00 which will be given to the Charity Bright Red. We have a collection box at the door.
In support of our hygienist Louise who continues with her treatment, Our chosen charity this year is Bright Red which supports people having treatment for blood cancer.
Thank you for your for your co-operation.
*Children under 11 need not wear a mask or people with a medical condition who are unable to wear a mask.
After all of her efforts throughout lockdown dental nurse Leanne has had the recognition she absolutely deserves, by having an article printed in Dental Nursing Journal. We are all so proud of Leanne for the videos she created and think she did a wonderful job
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 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!
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.
