Oh Christmas tree, oh christmas tree, how beautiful your branches!


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 

The Christmas tree in Reception is stunning! I know that because I chose it and I walk past it numerous times a day and it always makes me smile. It is a Nordman Fir (I know it's dropping it's needles already and yes I am watering it daily) and is particularly lovely because it is being adorned with very special decorations.

We are asking our patients to write on a decoration what they would like for Christmas and then Ben will choose one at random on Christmas Eve and that person will receive the gift of their choice (he's not allowed to choose his own!). What is most interesting however is the fact that very few people are asking for enormous expensive gifts (apart from Ben who has asked for a chainsaw!) and people are finding it hard to think of something that they really want. So much so that there are a good sprinkling of requests for donations to favourite charities and things that money can't buy mainly peace and good health.

Chloe tells me that even the children don't have extravagant tastes and have been asking for more traditional things like books, lego and a Mini Cooper toy which is reassuring!

I'm pleased that the spirit of Christmas is amongst us all - I love the general feeling of happiness, merriment and excitement everywhere not to mention the Christmas carols and songs in the office all day for us to sing along to. Not long to go now - only 18 sleeps to Santa!

Oh and don't forget to follow that naughty little #DentalElf on Facebook and Twitter. He has moved into the Practice and is causing mischief on a daily basis - I'm trying to keep him away from the tree!
