Celebrating 30 years!
April 2019

Our business manager Karon has celebrated being at the practice 30 years this week. What an incredible achievement. Ghyllmount Dental would not be the place it is today without all Karon’s hard work and effort she puts in on a daily basis. She really is one of a kind and her door is always open if we ever need her. Thank you Karon. Here’s to 30 more years.

A Roads to Autism
April 2019

Ghyllmount is pleased to support this event. Any support or raffle prizes would be appreciated. Please share and support if you can.

Check out their page; A Roads for Autism, Truck and Charity Ball

A Charity Truck Run being held during World Autism Week 2019. We are raising money for Cumbria Autism Family Support Project (part of Carlisle Mencap), which helps to support and advise families in the county with children who have an autism diagnosis.

Our son has taught us so much since his diagnosis at age 3, and we are very much learning on the job!! Sadly, we have had numerous negative experiences when out in public, and because of this we feel passionate about educating people about what autism is and some of the difficulties that individuals and their families can face.

“Autism is not a choice, however acceptance is”.

Autism Awareness Training Day
April 2019

Many thanks to the lovely Jeremy Angus who came along to Ghyllmount yesterday to talk to the team about autism.

He gave us all a better understanding of autism and ways in which we can make a visit to the dentist a little easier for those with autism and their carers.

We would love to hear from you too if you can think of ways where we can improve the service and things we can do to make your visit a bit less stressful.

Thanks again to Jeremy, we could have done with a whole day on the subject!

Recycle your oral care products
February 2019

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.
