Corona Virus – Dental Update
Issue Date: 15/6/2020
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
We've had a fabulous time during National Smile Month trying to get as many people as we can in Exeter smiling. Highlights for me were the day I spent at the Devon County Show where I met Natalie Cornah from Spotlight and a prize winning sheep amongst others, the wonderful teams at the Diabetes Centre and Force Cancer support at the RD&E and of course Gerald the Giraffe at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum - he was very good and stood beautifully still for me! You can see all the photos on our Facebook page.
Our Smile Tree has been a great success - there are over 100 hearts on it with children, grandchildren and pets featuring heavily. Others that made me smile were 'the Specsavers adverts', 'a good round of golf', 'Exeter City winning' and even 'coming to see Ben' (twice)!
If you recall, National Smile Month is brought to us by the British Dental Health Foundation and it is a reminder to:
- Brush your teeth last thing at night and at least one other time during the day with a fluoride toothpaste.
- Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drink
- Visit the dentist regularly, as often as they recommend
