It's just a 'trip to France treat'

Corona Virus – Dental Update

Issue Date: 15/6/2020

Dear All

Life Dental & Wellbeing is now open.

We are not running at full capacity yet as we are phasing our return to the new normal so please be patient if you are struggling to get through to us or waiting to hear back from you about an appointment. As expected, the way we operate will be a bit different but please do be reassured that we will continue to look after you and your oral health in a safe clinical environment.

If you have a dental appointment in the coming weeks we will be contacting you the day before to talk through the appointment procedure and ensure that you are happy to attend.

If you have a dental emergency please call the practice during normal working hours and we will endeavour to help you, however please be aware that there are some restrictions on the treatments we can undertake during the current Alert Status. Outside normal working hours and at weekends or on Bank Holidays please call the practice for further information that will guide you through the Out of Hours service.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Ben Pearson and the team 

There were a number of highlights during the Pearsons recent holiday in France (driving Barbara the Campervan up the Champs Elysee, Ben dropping a bicycle over the side of the boat into the river, Em's excellent GCSE results, visiting Ben's Great Uncle's grave in a war cemetery in Hazebrouck to name a few) but the one our girls have right there at the top of the list is the trip to Auchan. For those uninitiated with Auchan it's a supermarket chain with enormous stores with something for everyone. Ben heads straight for the pickles aisle and finds the biggest jar of Cornichon he can find (and it must have that funny little plastic device for bringing them to the surface so to speak) and a crate of stubbies to wash them down. I love a wander around the household section and I have to admit do have a penchant for Flan.

Having scoured the stationery section for pencil cases and vital school equipment that no-one else will have, the girl's like to pop a large jar of Nutella into the trolley hopefully unseen until we get past the checkout (although Ben knows exactly what they are up to really). It's the 'trip to France treat' and it's all gone by the time we come home 'and as long as you brush your teeth afterwards' Ben turns a blind eye to it.

However sadly it appears that too many of us have too much sugar in our diet and Jamie Oliver is about to highlight the effects and dangers of the Sugar Rush tonight on Channel 4 at 9pm. It's definitely worth a watch and then perhaps you might want to reassess how much sugar you have in your diet. I don't want to sound holier than thou but I have cut down my sugar consumption dramatically recently and it's not too hard after the first day or two and I do honestly feel much better for it. Obviously the Flan I popped into the trolley in Auchan was a 'trip to France treat' but when in France eh?
